An interesting watch, but is a bit too broad
A devout young man suffers in a freezing shack, while his geezer-ish roommate plans their escape. It’s a basic plot outline, at which almost everything you’d expect to see at the Fringe is thrown: poetry, religion, comedic touches, earnest drama, violence (hinted at) and full-frontal nudity (explicit). It’s an interesting watch, but is a bit too broad to be fully engaging.
