Halfway into the play, the title proves playable in a most boldly graphic way, but what could be seen in most other situations as gratuitous, here it is absolutely the opposite. Shocking the heck outta us is exactly what the always-outrageous Erik Patterson wants to accomplish. As Keith (Steven Culp), the playwright’s onstage counterpart, says soon after that little transaction goes south and the characters discuss its impact, “I need to make people uncomfortable. People need to leave this theatre and have this very conversation.” Mission accomplished.
