TOILET FIRE: Rectums in the Rectory is a celebration and ceremony of the one thing that unites us all: our need to go. Using the structure of an ancient religious ritual to talk about matters of digestion, philosophy, and faith, TOILET FIRE: Rectums in the Rectory explodes with song, audience participation, and unexpected textual twists. 

TOILET FIRE features such characters as an elderly Peest (priest), a sullen teen (alter-girl), a talkative flight attendant (cantor), and a variety of congregants with an assortment of ailments. By the end of this tour-de-toots, the trappings of a religious service fall away and TOILET FIRE reverts to a solo show with the real Eliza Bent talking and ultimately asking: How can we best relieve suffering? There will be puns. There will be poo.

with Alaina Ferris

Quotation Mark

“In using the distancing effects of language as a blunt instrument simultaneously to create strangeness and cut more deeply to the heart of human experience, Ms. Bent follows a long tradition of adventuresome playwrights.”
