"An inspired script with ribald humor, flights of poetic beauty, and an admirable grasp of the history, customs, social milieu, and religious controversies of the day." --Backstage, NYC.

I saw Vile Affections during the New York International Fringe Festival. I liked it so much that I went back a second time and brought two of my friends.
