Less Than Rent Theatre presents the world premiere of this Jacobean revenge comedy set in suburban Connecticut. More…
The teens of Greenport, CT face a chaotic spring semester as they grapple with loyalty, lust, narcissism, and nihilism before hitting the most important night of their lives: prom. 'FMK' mashes up the high drama of Jacobean theater with classic high-school tropes into a fast-paced and highly stylized epic. Secrets are spilled, backs are stabbed, and the survivors are left to count the dead and wonder how and why they got out alive. Best for ages 13 and up.
See it if There's a nugget of a good idea buried in 90 extra minutes of self-indulgence. Acting is solid given the writing they were given.
Don't see it if 3hr10min of teen angst and a shallow plot.
See it if This was a touch hang. The dialogue was painful to hear and at 2:45, it was about an hour too long. Some solid performances, but still...
Don't see it if You are looking for a solidly constructed show. You can’t relate to adolescents.
See it if you want to be in a theater full of young people - something of a rarity these days, and if you want to see some up and coming actors.
Don't see it if you'll be depressed by a bleak, depiction of millennials, with plenty of sex and self mutilation.
See it if you enjoy soap-operatic teen angst with heaps of violent revenge, set among clever staging and effective fight choreography.
Don't see it if you demand a polished and tight script or if you have a hard time differentiating similar-looking characters.
See it if You enjoy high school drama stories about backstabbing, deceit, etc. It's an entertaining/fun concept but needs refining and SERIOUS editing
Don't see it if The 3+ hour runtime is ABUSIVE to the audience! They Need to cut it by at least an hour. Some characters & scenes are completely unnecessary
See it if a talented, energetic cast performing Jacobean style comedy/tragedy updated to present day CT at high school prom time appeals to you.
Don't see it if if 3 hours of murder, incest, nudity, sex, violence & drug use sounds a bit much. WAY TOO LONG!
See it if Mixed feelings about this play. Good acting in a less than engaging piece of work. Deals with too many topics at once. Hard to follow.
Don't see it if You want something more of a feel good nature. Didn't relate to any of the characters. All are flawed and sad cases.
