Corkscrew Theater Festival presents a new play about Holly and Miles, two heirs to an etiquette dynasty. More…
Following in the footsteps of their media-mogul friends Ben and Jen, Holly and Miles launch a new brand targeted at manner-less #millennials. Will privilege, politesse, and podcasts save them from destroying one another? Part of the inaugural Corkscrew Theater Festival, which aims to increase access to production opportunities for a varied set of early career artists.
"While the seeds of a complicated discussion were planted, I found myself wishing for a deeper dive. But sometimes, subtlety is a positive here...This is a show marketed as being about millennials, but it treats its subjects with more care than most journalism on the same topic...It’s not perfect; few plot conclusions are made, it began to feel long past the halfway point, and the ending was puzzlingly vague. But how it approached its characters’ personal lives...was unexpectedly refreshing." Full Review
"Goettler and Hathaway have the germ of a good idea, and they even have some good scenes and dialogue. What they don’t have is something to say about what they’re presenting. They don’t have a play. They have some sketches that don’t go anywhere...There’s plenty of topical humor, but it doesn’t reveal much of anything to anyone. It’s all foam and no foie gras. That said, there is some excellent work here. The standout in the cast is Shackner’s Holly." Full Review
See it if you want to see some good acting from a young cast and great use of props in a small production on topics of the day.
Don't see it if you can't relate to the younger generation and their attitudes or want an ending that is more reasonable. Needs a little tightening up.
See it if want to support new theatre festival showcasing millennials and their concept of conflict & what is important 2 their lives, unique platform
Don't see it if want a more varied world view, need to see stars of today not tomorrow on stage
See it if See it if you are to open to diverse relationships and sarcasm.
Don't see it if Don't see it if your not opened minded about relationships and diversities also theres no real ending
See it if U are curious about Millenials & podcasts. U support new works & new artists & forgive their inexperiences. Costumes are good throughout.
Don't see it if U dislike inexperienced work. U are turned off by a play written & made clearly for the under age 30 market which is not business smart!
See it if You want to see a show with some truly funny moments and it won't bother you that it's desperately in need of a dramaturg.
Don't see it if You'll be annoyed by the feeling that there are two different shows happening here and they aren't able to decide which they want.
See it if You want to see a show that's entertaining-ish, but just doesn't seem to really exist for any reason. It's not fun enough or have any point.
Don't see it if You've only got time to see a few of the Corkscrew shows. You're time is better spent at False Stars, High School Coven or All of My Blood.
See it if You want to see a group of young actors doing a good job with this script. You don't mind a fast paced yet slow at times performance.
Don't see it if You want a powerful performance. You don't like small theaters with simple staging. You don't have an open mind.
See it if You want to support a playwright & cast in the early stages of their careers. You know someone w/the show. You like millennial stories.
Don't see it if You want a clean script: while there are some good ideas, none are developed enough. It has a Playwriting 101 assignment vibe.
See it if You want to support new shows at new festivals. Seeing this show would be a mitzvah.
Don't see it if You want a show that has some kind of dramatic arc or plot resolution or point to it.
