Sometimes no matter how hard you try, no matter how often you do the right thing, you still end up as next morning's breakfast.
Two inmates try to keep from being eaten alive in a morally bankrupt future prison system. Take one part French farce, one part existential angst, add a dash of Machiavellian survival instinct and you have Moxie. Moxie is a ruthless social satire addressing our cutthroat corporate culture; a dystopian absurdist comedy about the prisons we're born into, and those we create for ourselves.
“… nicely nuanced, mixing interesting intellectual points about how we weigh a person's worth in modern society with bruising slapstick. Thrasso Petras directs at the proper, frantic pace and the cast capably conveys equal parts of fear, paranoia and sheer stupidity” – Vancouver Sun
