Eppchez is an insightful and hilarious writer-director, and the actors had me gutturally guffawing for much of their performance. "They Extract!" is a show that stayed with me long after I left the theater.

Super on the fringe narrative based theatre. beautiful DIY feel with A LOT of heart. This is a type of story and way of story telling that you won't find anywhere else in Philly. Just check it before its short run is through!

What if we explored the dialectic between capitalist exploitation and our drive for human connection, on stage, with a myriad of tools of theatrical exploration masterfully employed, and with good humor to boot? We might have a damn beautiful mess of a play is what.
A thing recalling Kubrick and Bollywood and Chaplin and American Melodrama and youtellmewhatelse.. And I suspect, a thing which will echo in new Philly work in the coming years as audience-creators gleefully steal elements from it. Extract, even.

...every aspect of it (the acting, writing, powerful simple set with evocative lights/projections/shadows) is absolutely wonderful - simultaneously heartwarming and terrifying. I left feeling inspired and exhausted in the good way. Emotional labor, romantic love, familial love, loss, trauma, obligation and exploitation, bodies...still thinking about it this morning.
