Polished acting, Engaging, Uneven script, Thought-provoking, Dysfunctional family drama

See it if you're interested in eating disorders. "Perfect" Greenwich family has probs. Good (not great) play abt a serious (not earth-sh'tering) issue

Don't see it if you dislike dys family dramas. RR's a serious exploratn (w little humor). Well-crafted w steady build after slow beginning, but plot holes. Read more

The New York Times

CRITIC’S PICK "Home Is No Haven in ‘Rinse, Repeat.’ In Domenica Feraud’s potent drama, hard-driving parents don’t recognize the examples they set for a daughter with anorexia."

"'Rinse, Repeat': An Important Story Buried in Hackneyed Theater Tropes. Domenica Feraud's play about eating disorders lacks the substance to sustain it."

"A difficult subject, of the sort that requires the most sensitive handling, gets surprisingly lively dramatic treatment by a first-time playwright in 'Rinse, Repeat'…What could have been a clinical exercise or dreary informational pamphlet is a classic-style family drama packed with scenes that percolate with tension."

"Unfortunately, 'Rinse, Repeat' does not nearly rise to the level of a classic. It is, however, a good play with a fair share of melodramatic reveals, and it is centered on an important issue. In short, this is a Eugene O'Neill family drama presented as a Lifetime Original Movie."

New York Stage Review

★★★ "'Regarding a Family's Cycle of Eating Disorders.' A new play about dangerous eating habits scarcely satisfies as a family drama."

"Domenica Feraud has written and plays the main character Rachel in 'Rinse, Repeat' at Signature Theater Center. The story is about eating disorders and family dynamics as the family quibbles with each other on Rachel's test weekend home after spending 4 months at a facility to help rein in the problem...the story needs better focus."

Front Row Center
August 6th, 2019

75% "The topic here is one no one wants to talk about because it is elusive: eating disorders. In this case it is anorexia. Feraud takes the topic in hand and eventually sweeps us into the confusion and bewilderment that traps people afflicted with this disorder."

"But what of the play itself?...The rich and enduring questions raised in 'Rinse, Repeat' transcend the content of this important play and are relevant to all decisions that affect the sustainability of life and the integrity of the ego strength required to experience healthy psychological growth."
