Blunt Chunks shares the stage with six performers, a group of sad lovers obsessed with love and the ecstasy and wounds it elicits.

From chemical vices to cinema and the act of performing itself, Sims presents a vivid, hilarious and beautifully intelligent depiction of the lengths we go to in order to abandon our own realities. Each dramatic moment flows smoothly to the next, ebbing and flowing in intensity. Jillian Groening, The Dance Post
