The Exit Interview

Rated 4.0

Playwright William Missouri Downs out-Brechts Bertolt Brecht with this intriguing satire. Jouni Kirjola, Tara Henry and Earl Victorine excel in this absurd and absurdly funny comedy about existential angst, unemployment, oboes and school shootings. Gail Dartez directs a sizable ensemble whose members take on several roles (and costumes) each. If you're looking for logic and realism, this is not the play for you. But if you enjoy the skewering and barbecuing of sacred cows, this is definitely for you. Th, F, Sa 8pm. $10-$20. Through 10/11. Big Idea Theatre, 1616 Del Paso Blvd.; (916) 960-3036;
