Everything is psychotically in balance inside the compound of The Blessed Order, a global cult phenomenon led by virtuoso storyteller Miss Liza. As she returns from her latest Gathering, however, she discovers that a rival gang, The Black Stomp, has invaded her home. Champions of the art of mayhem, the crackerjack members of The Black Stomp have arrived in thrillingly absurd fashion to take back their founding father, Richard Notion, who defected and is rumored to be behind The Blessed Order’s remarkable success.

"...there is enough cleverness and antic physical energy to make this slight work a pleasant immersion in the comically surreal."
— Caryn James, The New York Times


"...Cucuzza...truly has a knack for the wacky—his non sequiturs can be their own reward."

— Time Out New York
