About The Play
A terrifying virus is infecting post-fact America. As vicious media pundits battle to control the narrative, an artifically intelligent sex doll named Mia has a breakthroughBut will she be our Savior, or is she the Angel of Death? EAT THE DEVIL is a wildly hilarious flight through an internet-driven Apocalypse that will leave you wondering if you have enough freeze-dried queso to survive...
