Sugar High: A Brectian Bitchslap

We really knew very little about what was going to happen- only that we were going to board a bus from the front of The Exit Theatre and take some kind of theatrical road trip around the City for 90 or so minutes, with the promise of an "immersive theater experience" and "beautiful vistas, gritty urban underbelly and transformational theater." Popcorn Anti-Theater delivered all that more, as the company resurrected itself with Sugar High: A Brectian Bitchslap as part of the SF Fringe Festival, now underway through September 16.

The story is part Whatever Happened to the Children From Those Experiments? and part The Revenge of the Sexy Assistant of the Not-So-Very-Mad Doctor. To divulge more would spoil the fun, but where you end up on this journey will likely delightfully surprise you (bring a warm jacket- and maybe a flask), though perhaps it won't reveal too much to suggest carrying a torch with you should you like roasting marshmallows. Popcorn Anti-Theater will return to staging regular theater-on-the bus next month. In the meantime, I recommend getting on board for this confection.

The bus leaves the Loin again on September 13th @ 7:00 and 10:30 PM, September 14 @ 7:00 and 10:00 PM, and September 15th @ 7:30 and 10:30. I advise going on the earlier ride if your partial to views, though the later show could provide a more pleasantly menacing, disorienting experience.
