Saturday, October 27, 2018

Comedy

A comical and cathartic parody of the Margaret Atwood novel and Hulu original series The Handmaid’s Tale. Set in 2028 Brooklyn, the show depicts modern millennials in a dystopian near future and the phone-less perils they must endure. A campy romp that finally gives the Handmaids some power and a voice, starring such characters as "Extremely Hot Nick," "Aunt Betsy DeVos," "Rory Gilmore," "Janine the One Eyed Bitch," and more.
