The show is billed as a black comedy: "Set in the heart of the non-stop city, Bump explores the misunderstood lives of those who get by." Because of its short runs, the nontraditional Juggerknot must rely on nontraditional means to pull in an audience. Reviews won't help: They can be only of the "too late -- you shoulda been there" variety. So Juggerknot must rely on its reputation and the willingness of locals to take a chance on unknown material. That in itself merits my vote. I hope to see you there.
