Hobo Junction is proud to announce the cast for HORRIBLE, a new comedy by Josh Zagoren...the mastermind behind Hobo Junction and author of the hit show BAD GUYS IN SUITS. HORRIBLE, Hobo Junction's Seventh production is a comedy about love, death and cannibalism. Malcolm Garrish is a doctor with a great deal of patience. Holly Goodly is a good-natured cannibal trying to save her family and failing flower shop. This is the story of how they met and fell in love in the wake of murders, ghosts and the soon to be world famous "Holly Ham".
