MORE INFO: Toilet Fire features such characters as an elderly Peest (priest), a sullen teen (alter-girl), a talkative flight attendant (cantor), and a variety of congregants with an assortment of ailments. By the end of this tour-de-toots, the trappings of a religious service fall away and Toilet Fire reverts to a solo show with the real Eliza Bent talking and ultimately asking: How can we best relieve suffering? There will be puns. There will be poo.
