About the play

This one's about daddy issues. And time travel.
Oh, and Jesus ****s a shark.

A mad scientist invents a time machine to kill her dad before she was born, to get revenge on him abandoning her as a child. Talk about daddy issues! Only when she uses the machine, a rift in time conjures Jesus (the ultimate poster child for daddy issues, think about it), and also an extinct australian shark that just wants to start a family of his own. And then Jesus and the shark have sex? It only gets more unhinged from there.

First produced as a short play by SHITE Productions (written and performed in 24 hours), this one's got real legs (or fins?) - so keep your eyes open for the full length version currently in development.
