Eliza Bent – Toilet Fire/Rectums in the Rectory @ Abrons Arts Center 11/13/15

Toilet Fire written by and featuring Eliza Bent (and Aliana Ferris) was a surreal mass chock full of costumes, scenery, sing-along hymns, projected slogans and graphs and plenty of POOP puns. A hysterical romp through Eliza’s intellectual take on the daily ritual that we all share. Here are some photographs from the evening’s mass.
