Last September, veteran downtown playwright Tony Stinkmetal foisted upon a Trump-weary New York City a frantic fever dream of a theater show: SlashR was a tongue-in-cheek satire that tackled issues as diverse as immigration, political correctness, dating apps, Benghazi, Big Pharma and bedbugs - all wrapped up in a cuddly tale of serial killers and Russians destroying American democracy.

SlashR is a taught and sexy thriller set in the traumatized New York of November 2016. What starts as a mundane murder investigation (of a young man prone to using dating apps) soon exposes a conspiracy for world domination skewering the entire two-party system, celebrity worship and the tendency for the US to find the shallowest and easiest solutions. In the course of the investigation, Detective Oakley comes up against evil PACs, a manipulative media, and serial killers. With the help of an outlaw hacker named Reeta and her mid-to-low-tech comrade The Exterminator, Oakley uncovers a connection between The Great Bed Bug Panic of 2010, the 2016 election, the worldwide spread of fascism and the scary clowns.
