HELL'S FINEST - The cult of Abaddon has a problem. The Angel of the Abyss, the figure with which they worship, is demanding a new leader. But not just anybody will qualify. Only the darkest, most demented contestants stand a chance at obtaining total power. A sadist, a murderer, and a predator, all share one common goal: to become the leader of the finest cult, the Ascendants of Abaddon. There's only one problem. In order to obtain this position, they must go up against each other in a riveting competition to impress the cult's current leader: Adam. He's spectacularly charming and possesses the uncanny ability to influence all those who cross his path. With secrets spilled and matches met, the three contestants grow more and more daring with their desperate attempts to gain total power. However, no matter what happens, no matter who lies and who cheats, Adam always calls the final shots.

"This entertaining production worked brilliantly in its simplicity. Between the actors and the costumes we were immersed in the experience with them. Ashlynn Judy's words and direction entertained us while it poked at our dirty little secrets with this funny and captivating play. The laughs filled the room, and at one point she touched a really big nerve with the perverted gynecologist’s character, that shifted the energy completely as he revealed his submission to his worst possible urge and any woman’s worst nightmare. This is pretty excellent and ‘hellish’ stuff. I look forward to what she writes for us next."

"I’m not one to shy away from twisted thematic material, and I’ve visited Hell on more than one occasion, but Hell’s Finest needs a lot of work to live up to its interesting concept. There is a lot of potential in a theatrical (or immersive) piece about contenders vying for leadership of a cult that worships a vengeful god; Hell’s Finest just needs more fine-tuning and energy to get there."

"I don’t know what went through playwright and director Ashlynn Judy’s mind when she wrote this, but, I hope she never loses it. Her creative genius is all over this thought provoking and interesting story. She brings out fragile human emotion and whips it up into something realistic so everyone can relate to it. I look forward to her next production. She’s on fire. "

"Hell’s Finest has a strong concept and the structure allows them to explore both the horror and comedy of what basically amounts to a cult leader job interview but with that comes a few hiccups in finding its identity. It doesn’t take itself seriously enough to be considered much of a drama and while there are some moments of horror it seems to be intended primarily with the issue there being that D and M are not funny."
