A young Catholic schoolgirl named Lucy launches an unholy crusade to undo the biggest mistake ever made: human existence. Bolstered by a mighty battle axe and her brilliant but nerdy sister Mary, Lucy conducts a merciless murder spree backwards through time, lopping off the heads of great religious thinkers from Darwin to Dante in her mission to find God and destroy him -- before he can create the torment of life as we know it.

Published Reviews

"...few playwrights could dream up a heretical, post-modern stew of a show like this one. Nguyen and Parker have the fearless, take-no-prisoners bravura of early Monty Python."

Martin Denton, nytheatre.com

"...brings manga to Milton, anime to Aquinas...an intelligently reasoned invective against faith."

Helen Shaw, New York Sun

"...gloriously irreverent."

Andy Probst, American Theater Web
