The kooky, dark humor of playwright Nicky Silver may make him somewhat of an outsider among those who favor entertainment-for-entertainment's sake, but he's become a regular attraction at AXIS Theatre, where his comedy, "The Food Chain," opens tonight.
AXIS has previously produced Silver's "Raised in Captivity" and "Pterodactyls." Now director Brian Klaas returns to Silver's offbeat world, which is as brimming as ever with neuroses and insecurities. Gina S. Braden, Bethany Brown, Patrick Martyn, Sean Rivers and Dennis U. Scott make up the cast. The set is by Joel Shephard, who created the sets for last season's production of "Angels in America."
