About the show

An amalgamation of two one-acts, presented as part of a social scientist's research on the subject of empowerment. Part of the 2018 Dream Up FestivalMore…

In the first one-act, 'Coz We’re Just Friends,' a nerdy, affable, college student, struggles to refuse doing a major favor to his closest friend, despite finding himself emotionally bullied, because of his deep love for his friend and his own conceptions about friendship. The second one-act, 'All In My Head,' focuses on a black actress, who complains to her representation about her repeated casting as a maid, leading to a deeper discussion about her particular problem, the generic problem. and how it can be resolved.

See it if you want to support new playwrights & actors. This play has potential w/its relevant theme(s), but it's not quite there yet.

Don't see it if you expect to hear a hypothesis and/or some conclusion to the "case study". Unfortunately, the 2 Acts don't connect so you're left hanging.

Also I wanted to like this one so much more.... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Intelligent, Timely, Two-hander, Disappointing

See it if You want to see two two-handers that stand well on their own. Want to see a play that discusses POC casting.

Don't see it if You are expecting to walk away with something psychologically profound in nature.

Also A Case Study is the rare example of a play wherein the whole is actual... Read more Read less
