When: Mondays, Fridays, Sundays. Continues through Oct. 31 2011

The set and almost all the costumes are white in Annoyance Theatre's horror send-up, the better to bring out the blood that's sprayed on the walls as folks get murdered in quick succession. There isn't much time to get to know the characters before they're offed: Alejandro the puppet chorizo is as well developed as any of the humans. But since they're played as stereotypes anyway--slut, virgin, jock, lesbian neighbors--it doesn't much matter. The plot, involving a teen party thrown by the new kid in town, exists only to gets victims into position to be eviscerated, beheaded, or even more creatively killed. It's a funny, gross good time, and you can stick around afterward to watch the actors wash down the walls. --Julia Thiel
