Playwrights Horizons presents the world premiere of Anne Washburn's new play about a group of old friends who reckon with their pasts as they bury a loved one. More…
In a ranch house deep in Texas Hill Country, a once tight-knit group of friends reunites to bury one of their own. Sadness and nostalgia go hand in hand, as they begin to reminiscence. But as they look back through their lives, it becomes clear they’ve lost more than just their old pal. The boundaries between then and now grow disarmingly blurry as these estranged friends confront their slippery past.
See it if you enjoy very pretentious theatre. This is a very big disappointment from Anne Washburn. Even Ken Rus School couldn't fix this disaster.
Don't see it if you're smart. Stay away.
See it if you prefer ambition to content and don't need to be given much to feel compelled in the theater.
Don't see it if you're looking for a tangible story/experience.
See it if you like recent M Night Shyamalan films (pretentious, empty works with unsatisfying and obvious spectral "twists").
Don't see it if you loved Mr Burns, A Post-Electric Play and are hoping for another great work by Anne Washburn.
See it if Insipid drivel, dull wandering plot served up in tedious limp language. "You were slumbering, slumbering, slumbering." Weren't we all.
Don't see it if You might be afraid, as I was, that for the first time in your life you might scream out in the middle of the show, "Who cares??!!!" Agony.
