Hot Brown Honey Hot Brown Honey is a stereo­type-smash­ing po­lit­i­cal cabaret that fea­tures a bevy of pow­er­ful and tal­ented First Nation women who are dead set on call­ing out the pa­tri­archy th­ese in The Play That Goes Wrong with the Corn­ley Polytech­nic Drama So­ci­ety per­form­ing a creaky mur­der mys­tery. It fol­lows the Zer­linMcGil­livray for­mula: scenery dis­in­te­grates, props are mis­placed or flimsy, light­ing cues are missed, lines are for­got­ten, and ac­tors mug, show­boat and try to up­stage each other, with em­pha­sis on ex­treme slap­stick.
