LITTER

Bizarre and compelling, the world premiere of Litter is Nachtrieb's dark brand of comedy with a pop twist.

Litter: The Story of the Framingham Dodecatuplets.   

Forget the Octomom. June, the unseen mother in Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's latest play, has her beat in the multiple-birth sweepstakes by half.   The idea is irresistible in the era of fertility treatment mania.  Written specifically for the 12 MFA students, the comedy about what happens to the 12 siblings' tightly controlled singing-group togetherness once they grow up.  It explores the lives of 12 22-year-olds - raised by a fertility clinic and business managers and named only 1 through 12 - who still share the same bed and bathroom.

By Robert Herwitt

It's a fully professional outing, staged with panache by Associate Artistic Director Mark Rucker with brightly comic choreography by Erika Chong Shuch and music by Nikos Tsakalakos for Nachtrieb's satiric pop songs. It's also often fiercely funny.”
