First and foremost Moloch is a work of comedic satire. In no way is it intended as an expression of a personal philosophy or agenda. If it were my wife would have killed me long ago.

Moloch was originally part of a one-man show titled, Cocktails: a Satire in Black, which examined male dysfunction through a black lens. It was conceived as a starkly mad and vicious exploration; a dark ride on the hot id of the male psyche.

Moloch, the character, speaks from the dark side of the male psyche; a side many men are uneasy acknowledging but which continues to guide and too often, control our behaviour. He combines the pariah and the apostle, on one hand spouting nihilistic dogma, repugnant to the rational mind and on the other thundering primordial truths, seductive to the fight/flight centre of our lizard brain.

All that aside, Moloch is about a guy who realizes that men have very little reason to run the game of life and that if we don't get back to oppressing women we're finished.
