It’s a Sunday morning in a sunny, suburban kitchen. Barb is making breakfast for her husband, Walt. Their children, Jack and Jill, are busy writing a play. When Barb and Walt disagree over a seemingly innocuous piece of blueberry toast, the veneer of their polished existence begins to crack and what's underneath might eat them for breakfast.

Brilliantly dark, gritty, and infiltrated with massive strokes of Pinter-esque absurdity...a new generation of dark comedy.
