In The Death of the Alberta Report, a cutOne begins with an excruciating postLily kicks off with a spectacular battle over a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Each play contains a generous deed. And in the second half, the surprising consequences of those four seemingly unrelated acts of generosity will take your breath away.
