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 You want to test your endurance level of c**p. See how long before you want to bolt from the theatre.
Don't see it if You can avoid it. The whole experience is bad from the temperature levels of the theatre to the cacophonous music(?) that starts the play.
See it if Which season of "Revenge" am I watching, or another unfunny evening of Jimmy Fallon hosting the Tonight Show. The play's energy is spot on.
Don't see it if The cast is uneven (being too kind, on my part, models turned actors?) and too big, hence no character development, or very little...a mess.
See it if you want to see one of the year's coolest design elements, with about 100 knives and daggers suspended from the ceiling over the action.
Don't see it if even if you enjoy gleeful hedonism, this is amateurish. Too long (3 hrs), too many characters. Settles for shock value instead of depth.
See it if You want to see a playwright use immature themes, lanagage, and shock value to makes up for lack of talent and depth.
Don't see it if You like peices of Theater that make you think and start conversation.
See it if you have 3 hours to waste or care about the problems of whiny, self-indulgent adolescents
Don't see it if you are bothered by simulated sex, violence, rampant drug use, incest or you are interested in a coherent, well-written play
