Fault Line Theater Company and Anna & Kitty, Inc present this new comedy about pretending to be what you already are. More…
From the show:
Zach is a medieval scholar and devotee of LARP (Live Action Role Playing); Laura ghost-writes romance novels. They meet at the crossroads of the competing realities they create and live in. Round Table is a comedy about pretending to be what you already are.
See it if you'd like a rom-com w a twist of medieval LARPing. Well-drawn chars. Bro Kay esp'ly likable. Lively, but long for plot. Gd use of sm stage.
Don't see it if you dislike monologues break 4th wall. Or bored by silly,rep'tive medieval scenes. Or want to learn (basic relnship stuff). Gd set. Clever.
See it if you want to follow three different stories. Poor direction and some poor performances do not help this production.
Don't see it if you want a more coherent play. This play is still at the workshop stage.
See it if You want to watch a talented cast of actors deal with occasionally good scenes in the midst of a muddled, dull play.
Don't see it if You don't want to see a play that is slow, and confusing. There is potential to the story but it needs some heavy re-writes.
See it if you can empathize with people who can find meaning in taking themselves seriously in a fantasy world; you like rom-coms.
Don't see it if you'll write off roleplaying as "too weird for you" you're bothered by cringe-y romcom humor, or very occasional swearing.
See it if You enjoy rom coms, into nerd culture & wanna see a clever show that comments it, looking for a feel good play with funny characters
Don't see it if Looking for something profound or revolutionary, not interested in a male centric play, not interested in dating scene or nerd culture
See it if You enjoy geekdom & fandom, a story about a character that navigates life through their passions. Cast of characters are funny and endearing
Don't see it if are looking for something lighthearted. There’s a melancholy to the show.
See it if you think my review at http://theaterlife.com/round-table/ may be wrong.
Don't see it if you think I may be onto something with my review at http://theaterlife.com/round-table/
See it if you care about and understand LARPs, you want charismatic actors who chew scenery, you like romantic sitcom plots
Don't see it if you find romcoms cliche, or don't like actors doing spotlight monologues at the audience, or want more politically charged material
See it if want to show support to actors,expected comedy ( it is not, even when advertising say so), like everything that 59E59 theater does
Don't see it if Mix but no match: King Arthur, modern day writer and medieval time consultant, glioblastoma and magic sword, too long and strange ending
See it if you enjoy a story you can just lean back and enjoy without thinking too much. feel it is best for those ages in 20s and 30s
Don't see it if you are easily confused or dislike continual transition between reality and fantasy.
