Theatre is Easy

"The material of the show ranges from light and clever to emotionally demanding, and though there are strong performances, particularly from Sandford and Rahman, often scenes feel flat...Ultimately, 'F***’d 'Til Payday' deserves to be applauded for its emotional vulnerability and commitment to challenging the norms of theater, calling attention to the ways in which performance itself is part of our daily lives...It is unafraid to be real, with all the messiness that includes."

See it if you like raw, honest, compelling performances with a brilliant meta- structure. Rahman, Breton&their team are fascinating, vulnerable& REAL.

Don't see it if you can't take the intensity of performers sharing their truths with you in an interesting and organic way; or prefer purely upbeat sketch
