Original Review on KC Applauds

A powerful drama about the effects of toxic chemicals and fumes in a small Missouri town leads to unknown future health problems for long-time workers in the candy-making plant, bringing into question the working conditions, exposure, and safety to workers as the first wave of work-related illnesses surface.

“Slurry” by local Kansas City playwright Mike Rice shows the fear one man faces as he fears that he has been exposed to chemical fumes that created lung problems and an unknown future. His prognosis is that he contracted a rare disease from exposure to a cleaning chemical and its fumes. His next scheduled appointment awaits with a pulmonary specialist for further assessment.

An extremely drunk and scared Wade Cruz fears for his life and his future and seeks the comfort of his ex-girlfriend and current lover, Sherry. As such, he climbs through her window in the night seeking comfort and most likely sex. Wade, now married, seems shocked that Sherry does not want him at her home in the middle of the night and has moved on to a new boyfriend who also works for the candy company.
