About the show

"Rinse, Repeat" is a new play that conveys the painful truth about confronting a disorder that is often met with denial from both the patient and the people that love them. More…

Rachel hasn’t been home in four months. After fighting for her life at Renley, a trial weekend has been agreed upon. At first, Rachel couldn’t be happier to be reunited with her family. But what happens when the people you love most, the ones you believe want the best for you, are the ones causing the most damage without even knowing it? Where do you go when the place you feel you most belong might be the place that almost killed you in the first place? "Rinse, Repeat" sharply conveys the painful truth about a woman's fight for her life in the face of an eating disorder.

ADVISORIES: This play contains nudity. Recommended for ages 15 and up.

Afterschool special live, Diffuse script, Uneven execution, Important subject

See it if the subject of eating disorders is so important to you that even a mediocre play on the subject would be worth seeing.

Don't see it if you’re looking for a play that has something crisp, acute or insightful to say about the continuing problem of eating disorders in the US.

Also The huge toll that eating disorders takes on the physical & mental hea... Read more Read less

Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if You are unfamiliar with eating disorders and the devastation they cause. Earnest and well meaning but too much by the numbers.

Don't see it if I was truly puzzled by the full frontal nudity. If we were meant to be aghast at her anorexia it didn't work. And rarely do anorexics purge

Also The anorexics I worked with in residency were so emaciated that it hur... Read more Read less

Relevant, Resonant, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if You are into the topic of eating disorders and family drama. Actors are quite good and are wasting their talents here.

Don't see it if You have better things to do and are not interested in watching a talented group of actors in a show about eating disorders.

Not super memorable, Disappointing, A bit juvenile, Slow

See it if you want to see a show by a young playwright who's obviously invested in the subject material

Don't see it if if you're triggered by eating disorders

Ambitious, Good acting, Thought-provoking

See it if See it if your ok w/ family problem not always discussed, how we relate to food— eating disorders, good acting but know script needs work

Don't see it if If you want a happy musical

Disappointing, Ambitious, Cliched

See it if You want a primer in blaming others for your problems.

Don't see it if You want complexity and believable characters.

Relevant, Ambitious, Cliched, Indulgent, Thought-provoking

See it if Important subject matter, but a 'problem play' needs to be less about the 'problem' and more about the people.

Don't see it if Author starring in a play based on her life -- well fine, but needs more dramatlurgic development by an outsider to make it more than a vani

Also ty project. A+ for writing about a not-often explored subject, but C f... Read more Read less

Important, but needs work

See it if You want to see a brand new family drama. Our relationship with food interests you.

Don't see it if You aren’t interested in a drama about our relationship with food.

Also The first hour is flat in both story telling and direction. It feels v... Read more Read less

See it if You like new plays. You like plays that deal with issues that aren't often discussed in public.

Don't see it if you wants something lite and only entertaining.

Also There's things to like, but the play takes a long time to rev up. Watc... Read more Read less

Banal, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if The actress who plays the mom is excellent. Direction and set/lighting also well done.

Don't see it if An hour 40 minutes is too long to go without an intermission

Also Too many scene changes results in the audience never settling in with ... Read more Read less

"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 ...
