Synopsis: From the creator of “Poops, I Did It Again,” Brie Henderson, comes “The Taming of the Poo,” a collection of true tales of poo turned into a series of comedic monologues. After suffering from ulcerative colitis, Brie Henderson pooped her pants. A lot. So she did what any actress would do: she wrote a funny play about it. After every show, people would corner her or email her or find her on Facebook to tell her poop stories of their own.
Since people seem to love talking about poop, she took a collection of these stories and a second show was born. “The Taming of the Poo” runs a little under an hour and has no social or political agenda. It will not make you cry or amaze you with its dramatic integrity. It is simply funny poop stories told by some of Kansas City’s finest storytellers, some of whom you may not even know yet. There is a little bit of what some might consider “questionable” language, but there is no nudity, violence, or sadness. Just a whole lot of stories about poo from a diverse cast who range in age from 12-much older. If you want to laugh, cringe, and sit in a nice and comfortable theatre for about an hour, this is the show to see.
