(compromised of Erin Elizabeth Orr, Emma Peterson, Bries Vannon, and
Greg Wenz) is animated and earnest, finding the anguish and humor in
each speech... Robbel makes playful, decisively physical use of the
Right Brain Project's tiny Ravenswood theater... Good theatre doesn't
require much to be compelling. My Filthy Hunt is an argument for how."

"In Nathan Robbel's dynamic staging, the most unconventional thing about My Filthy Hunt is its refusal to indulge in postmodern irony. It surprises with sincerity."
The critically acclaimed play at 2007's Edinburgh Festival hit America square in the jaw at the RBP! This raucous, wild, and sometimes heart-achingly tender show spits in the face of theatrical convention. We kicked off 2011 with an exciting collaboration between Chicago fringe and UK fringe company Horizon Arts. In My Filthy Hunt, we meet four souls who have been touched by Marvin; they once were lost, but now they're found. And make no mistake - their new-found confidence will take the world by storm. But where does that strength really come from? Is it so fleeting that Marvin's absence could turn them into something so ugly? If it's all going to hell, maybe it was better that they never met Marvin in the first place. How does one move on from a void like this? Donuts would help...
