Inspired by TV's Little House On The Prairie, writer/director Dane Whitlock's outrageous parody, Prairie-oke, won raves during its 2013 premiere at Silver Lake's Cavern Club (incidentally L.A.'s best underground theatre space).
As much as Halloween reminds me of the thoroughly grim moments of being lost, bewildered and a wooden orphan in Pinocchio, it just might be a welcome celebration to further strengthen our resolve to live through alarming times, real or imagined.
