Sam Saginaw isn’t just selling you one hundred percent legitimate, bonafide, tried and true SNAKE OIL – he’s giving you, with every bottle, a guarantee of health, wealth, happiness, spiritual fulfillment, boundless love and wonder, existential comfort and an invitation to connect with the divine spark that drives the universe ever outward, to infinity, to eternity. A dark comedy from celebrated Canadian playwright Jayson McDonald (Novel House, Underbelly, Giant Invisible Robot).
“Snake Oil starts off as a fast and funny study of a familiar stock character but, like the snake itself, the clever script twists back on itself… Four and a half Suns” –Edmonton Sun
