Tongue In Cheek presents this world premiere comedy about women, work, and knowing when to lean in.
It's the eve of the launch of a new, all-female co-working space, HER(E) SHE. As the staff prepares for its big day, a series of calamities threaten to derail their hard work.
“A compelling, well-written play. It does a very fine job at exploring issues of sexual harassment, and what it means to be a feminist in 2018, on a very human level, and does so with an excellent balance of both light humor and potent drama. Starts off a bit slow, and there are some mildly unnecessary scenes...However, you forget about that by the time of the play’s emotional climax...One of the most wonderfully written plays focusing on this issue.” Full Review
See it if You are interested in a play that deals with harassment in a sensitive way. Very relevant.
Don't see it if You prefer larger theaters or musicals or if you don’t want to understand harassment and the impact it can have
See it if you want to experience a relevant well-written serio-comedy, supported by a strong cast, some of whom play multiple roles.
Don't see it if there's even a drop of misogyny in you. It's all women here, & the only male character turns out to be trouble for the new company.
See it if you like timely issues from today's headlines, but it takes a single dimensional approach
Don't see it if you want a compelling plot, a lot of the jokes fall flat and it feels a bit gimmicky
See it if If, like many who attended, you are acquainted with the cast or writer.
Don't see it if You find characters of apparently zero intelligence an embarrassment to women everywhere.
See it if If you're a woman, or a man, or human. See it if you want a thoughtful, witty, engaging dive into the experiences of women in modern offices
Don't see it if If you hate laughing, or thinking, or both.
See it if you care at all about feminism, are angered by the current political climate, and you like to laugh.
Don't see it if you are dead? Everyone should see this whether they are right, left, or center.
See it if you want an amazing play, great writing, and great acting. We went with friends and enjoyed our evening of being Relentlessly Pleasant.
Don't see it if you're a boring person.
See it if Relentlessly Pleasant is a smart, funny, and moving look at what it means to be a woman in the workplace. Timely and thought-provoking.
Don't see it if You hate women.
See it if The cast is one of the best I’ve seen in Off Off Bway... funny, evocative, compelling! I want it to transfer to a bigger venue. So timely...
Don't see it if Honestly, I loved it. I’m going to bring a group of women from my office. Some use of the “f” word, so if that bothers you...
See it if This is a tautly told tale of women at a crossroads with their quests to “have it all”... brava to the company for really saying something!
Don't see it if You want a mindless comedy.
Also I am going to see it again before it closes!!!
See it if You want to see a reasonably-priced comedy with outstanding cast and something to say about the state of teh world and women!
Don't see it if You like a lot of razzle-dazzle. It's a small black box theater.
See it if I stumbled upon seeing this show -- went with a friend who knows someone in the cast. It was friggin' awesome! So funny and moving!
Don't see it if It is about working in an office, so if you want an escape from your work life, maybe don't see this show?
See it if You like a play with twists and turns! I gasped a couple of times and also laughed at how work and ambition was portrayed onstage.
Don't see it if You prefer drama or Shakespeare. This is a contemporary piece with a lot of humor and heart.
See it if Incredibly timely for today's discussion of women in the workplace and the #MeToo movement, but it doesn't take a one-dimensional approach.
Don't see it if Hard to imagine disliking it. It's a comedy but also a thought-provoking piece, so if you're looking just for easy laughs, this isn't it.
