Thanksgiving kicked off the holiday dinner party season, but Hunter Gatherers at Las Vegas Little Theatre has something a bit less genteel in mind. The play follows a reunion party of two pairs of couples—starting with a ritualistic lamb slaughter, and going downhill from there. “It’s about the couples reverting back to a primitive state, leaving behind the refinement that society imposes as part of civilization,” the show’s director, Shane Cullum, says. “I’ve told the actors to take it as far as they can go. Just go for it. Obviously, I don’t want the play to be X-rated, but let’s make it as R-rated as I possibly can. It’s just a silly, crazy play.”

Hunter Gatherers December 6-22; Thursday-Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.; $14-$15. Las Vegas Little Theatre, 362-7996.
