Three guys get together one night and smoke dope, talk about their favorite bands, and play practical jokes on one another. They also bake cookies, sing Indigo Girls songs, and whine about their periods. When a delivery boy arrives with pizza, one of the three identifies him as a rapist and attacks him. After things calm down, the chums snuggle together on the floor to sleep. Are they gay? Hets with gender conflicts? Men enacting an arcane bonding ritual? Actors mocking the recent boom in gynecentric comedy? If playwright J. Scott (who calls this "a flailing attempt") had developed his concept more, his intent might be apparent. At any rate, KudLL PuNk offers an hour of low-budget, equal-opportunity, curiously nonconfrontational vulgarity--a commodity some are sure to find appealing. Through 10/2: Sat 9 PM. Acme Art Works, 1741 N. Western, 312-835-0245. $15.
