WEST COAST PREMIERE! In a not-too-distant future, nestled deep in the woods of what was once a small Midwestern town, a modest compound is home to five denim-clad sister wives and their naive husband, "Penis." When a mysterious sixth wife arrives to join the sisterly Braid, clad in scandalous acid-wash and singing forbidden songs of ancient riot grrls, will she compromise the security of this pious sect? And who, if anyone, will produce a long-awaited heir from the night of The Seedling, their semi-annual procreation ritual?

This show was silly. Funny. Smart. The script was excellent. I was very upset that I came with my mother and we had to stand outside until ten minutes after the show was supposed to start. I know sometimes shows start late but leaving us outside was disrespectful and rude. I loved the show but I don't know if I would return to the theater knowing that this is how they treat their patrons. If the show is starting outside then start it on time because not everybody is able-bodied and can stand for so long without being prepared to.

Rosie Glen-Lambert directs this farce as if she is trying to throw in bits of nonsense to distract the audience from the fact the play has nowhere go. Each of the wives (Meg Cashel, Jennie Ken, Lana Rae Jarvis, Teri Gamble) display uniquely individual characteristics that, while attention-getting, result in no pay off.

It is a scrumptious, in-your-face satire that might make its ancestors, Beyond the Fringe and Monty Python, green with envy. Denim Doves is spiced with rudeness and a fearless use 0f language, all powered by an extraordinarily dedicated cast of players who, under the demanding direction of Rosie Glen-Lambert, throw caution to the wind, playing with balls-to-the-wall foolhardiness in a damn-the-torpedoes, swing-for-the-fences dedication.
