Here Are Some Additional Photos From The Offensive Play:
I don't even think I need to comment on this insanity but I will anyhow. The entire play is clearly shocking for the sake of being shocking. There's unnecessary nudity, offensive imagery and off-color political commentary in every scene in this pathetic attempt at performance art. Between this and the Jesus orgy drawing making the rounds, I'm not sure which is more upsetting. It's clear that people are using the most shocking scenarios they can dream up to net some instant press coverage. Scandals sell tickets and these folks are in the business of selling no matter who they offend.
