Tympanic Theatre Company presents an evening of eight short works filled with creeps and weirdos. Among the undesirables: car thieves, assassins, a hooker without a heart of gold, three ghouls who feast on sick children, two bedraggled castaways pursued by a giant vulture, and one seriously deranged Paul Bunyan. Even with all this madness on display, it's the good writing that stands out, and that's what distinguishes two late-in-the-show pieces. Lauren D. Yee's "Zachary Zwillinger Eats People"--about a man's love/eat relationship with anthropomorphized candy--balances Sarah Ruhl-esque cuteness with genuine feeling, and Bob Fisher's "Personal Apocalypse" hilariously exploits the gap between what's said and done during an interrogation led by a calmly menacing bureaucrat (the excellent Danielle Forrester). --Zac Thompson
