Sahara BreeZe (SBZ) Productions in conjunction with Experimental Theatre Collective (ETC) bring to life this political satire Out at Sea by Polish playwright Slawomir Mrozek.  

Starving, stranded on a raft out at sea, ‘Fat’, ‘Medium’ and ‘Thin’ employ a logical application of democratic and other political processes to debate who out of them should be eaten. Will it be the Stalinesque ‘Fat’ who manipulates the masses with her political ideals to create a false social reality; the opportunistic middle-class ‘Medium’ with his excellent cooking skills; or the downtrodden Zelensky-like ‘Thin’? Who will make the ultimate sacrifice?

includes some singing and clowning!
