In the guise of an open rehearsal, three actors encourage, abet and challenge each other on spiritual, mental and physical levels. They're by turns playful, stoned, drunk, angry, horny, sad, lost, metaphysically zoned out, and even genuinely uplifted.

Decide for yourself while enjoying the delicious nut bread the cast serves the audience at the play's close.
