Soho Rep presents a series of provocations that overlap, intersect, and explode to create a theatrical and irreverent play about how we talk to—and about—each other. More…
How do you love, learn, work, mate, marry, watch, shop, listen, win, dress, think, feel, fight, eat, take, beg, birth, give, weigh, serve, scream, write, die, play, walk, worry, laugh, share, sleep, lose, dance, piss, age, bleed, bake, yell? And how do you talk about it? Alice Birch's new play, directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, explores it all.
See it if you like opinionated female playwrights & don't mind their point to be presented more than a bit in-your-face. Also, if you like stage blood
Don't see it if you think that argument presented without going overboard is much more compelling. Also, if diappointing misuse of good ideas annoys you.
See it if you are okay with seeing something start out promisingly but end up in a cliched, confusing dystopian vision.
Don't see it if you are put off by mediocre acting (by some of the cast) and by confusing, theme driven staging.
See it if you like non-linear, "experimental" theater with a healthy dose of social commentary. I like how the "politics" of this one snuck up on me.
Don't see it if you need a plot, something/someone to follow, and fancy staging. Here, the words are the star. It did feel long for how short it is.
