Nkechi was a good Nigerian-American girl. She did everything right. Went to med school. Made plans. Then life happened. A first-generation immigrant coming-of-age journey of love, loss, and growing into adulthood. More…
"Good Grief" follows Nkechi as she navigates Pennsylvania’s suburbs alongside her childhood crush, her would-be-philosopher brother, and her immigrant parents.
See it if Hunter Parrish is the only good actor in this mess of a show. Loved how he sang "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men towards end of show.
Don't see it if Rest of cast is terribly amateurish. Many in audience were asleep thru the 95 minutes. Ugly 2 level set, harsh lighting.
See it if you like lively but confusing plays with minimal plot.
Don't see it if you do not celebrate casual sex, especially for high school boys, and girls losing their virginity by age 15.
See it if you want to see another memory play that features aspects that you have seen before. The ugly set and poor direction do not help this play.
Don't see it if you like slow-paced plays that really has nothing original going for it. The actors tried their hardest, but the material let them down.
