The play is a light-hearted comedy about fossils, radioactive material, cows, toxic dumps, and – most importantly – protecting your home. It’s not deep stuff or punch to the gut drama, but it is a solid play with a proven record by a popular Canadian playwright Dan Needles and it’s a fun show to take in. Especially if you like to laugh at the government.
