Based on Tim Seeley's comic-book series of the same name, Strangeloop Theatre and Chemically Imbalanced Comedy's punchy, bloody horror show takes us on the road with a formidable vigilante duo. Cassie Hack, an ornery outcast on a hunt for serial killers both zombie and human, travels the country with her only friend, a humble hulk of a guy named Vlad who knows his way around a meat cleaver. Unwittingly, the show assumes the structure of a job interview as, via flashbacks, we’re briefed on the resumé of past experiences that qualify Cassie for the position of killer killer. Things pick up in the second half, when the plot takes a turn into a more complicated on-the-ground assignment; the humor kicks up a notch too, with some extraordinary puppetry portraying a psychopathic teddy bear, unusual characters like a disgraced Miss America turned CEO, and a few well-paced slapstick ass kickings from Cassie and Vlad. —Jena Cutie
