"Consider the Oyster" is offbeat perfection

Rating:  4 out of Fordyce

The show was written by Michael Brian Ogden and, in an unusual twist, also stars Michael Brian Ogden. This man writes and acts well, and I was very pleased with a script that mixes the Godfather, Saint Patrick’s Day, and the Corktown neighborhood of Detroit all together in a tale of two hitmen in the Irish version of organized crime.
