Show Info

By Stephen Kaliski
Directed by Stephen Kaliski and Amanda Holston

With Shawna Cormier*, Maggie Low*, Jeremiah Maestas*, Roger Manix, and Josh Tobin*

Stephen Kaliski's jubilantly foul, gently futuristic Gluten! follows newlyweds Copious Fairchild and Hibiscus Van der Waal as they do everything they can to conceive a child. They move into a new abode. They see the best doctors. They even try sex the new way, but to no avail!

When Copious' estranged mother pays a visit with a radically new-age proposition, the couple is forced to confront all the demonic glutens they've tried so hard to eliminate.

Following up on their critically acclaimed revival of Nicky Silver's Pterodactyls, The Adjusted Realists deliver a crackling new comedy about the latest threat to an America desperate for spiritual (and digestive) freedom.
