JUGGALICIOUS by Britton Buttrill, directed by Celine Rosenthal

What is a Juggalo? Not just a fan of the Insane Clown Posse. Being a Juggalo being part of a family. When Ice Pete, a young Juggalo from Alabama, discovers that his grandmother, Mammy, is in need of a new kidney, he and his friends Fluffy, Hatchett, and Twista take drastic but misguided means to insure her survival, journeying to the Gathering of the Juggalos and ultimately into the heart of the Dark Carnival itself.

Juggalicious is a dark comedy about of a group of fans devoted to the music and theology of the horror-core rap group, The Insane Clown Posse. These individuals, who define themselves as “Juggalos” have a communal devotion and adherence to religious and spiritual philosophies put forth through the albums of this rap group; a group who have been dubbed by Rolling Stone to be the “worst band in the world”. Yet, the Juggalos are representative of a social demographic; specifically the ostracized, the alienated, and the impoverished persons in American society. Juggalicious strives to explore themes of class-consciousness, the dichotomy between the privileged and the unprivileged, and in addition the fragmentation of the nuclear family. At its core, this play is about the human struggle against the immovable obstacles of poverty and abuse, and the drastic, though often destructive, measures one may take in order to overcome.
