Creators\ performers Anthony Johnston and Nathan Schwartz have assumed the names David and Jack for this adventure which doesn't probe as much into fundamentalism as it does the relationship between the two friends and how the conversion therapy almost destroyed the friendship. It goes from hilarious to dramatic and back again as if the audience was a restless TV viewer with a shaky surfing finger.Jumping back and forth keeps us engaged and off balance at the same time. And don't let the title fool you, it gets very loud before it gets quiet.
Runtime: approximately 80 minutes with no intermission.
