About the show

Jack and Here present this meta-theatrical drama that explores what people manage to find in each other when the world feels past saving. More…

An arts collective gathers to celebrate their director's birthday; fueled by Moscow Mules, the partygoers sprawl across the apartment, decompressing from their ongoing rehearsal process. They speculate about the end of the world. They dance. They nap. As the night unfolds, the play that they are building – about our planet's ailing oceans -- pervades every conversation, until the party guests find they are performing it.

Time Out New York

"The Rady&Bloom production manages to be disorienting on two fronts. We see how nasty we can be to those we love and how that breezy callousness—scaled up slightly—may have doomed the earth...It’s not a roaring success; the too-sweet sentiments at the end don’t live up to show’s bright acidity. But it commands attention for its marriage of the personal and the political—its insistence that the world is with us, even at a party." Full Review

The New York Times

"The night goes nowhere. That’s probably the point...Nothing really goes according to plan, though planning isn’t one of the playwright Alex Borinsky’s big concerns...It doesn’t entirely work. The party scene is intended as a kind of gift, however poorly wrapped, but the acting often falters and the shots taken at the Brooklyn creative class are mostly cheap ones...I’d lay good money that this lack of action is deliberate...So stop whining about plot and pass the salsa."

Intense, Quirky, Confusing

See it if you're interested in experimental theater and the thought process behind the ideation of a play.
