About the show

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.

Slow, Raunchy, Intense, Edgy, Violent

See it if You are interested in a new take on a Jacobean tragedy, specifically “T’is Pity She’s a Whore” You enjoy plays about today’s teens.

Don't see it if You will be disturbed by a violent, horrific extremely bloody play featuring high schoolers all of whom have taken a dangerous path.

Clever, Great acting, Great staging, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You want to see a well-directed young cast with an interesting new take on a classic 17th century tale.

Don't see it if Profanity, sex, or murder bother you

Ambitious, Intelligent, Exciting, Must see, Flawed

See it if Wow! Horror, comedy, teen mayhem, millennial morality play. Energy to spare. Great talent team: writing, acting, staging, choreography.

Don't see it if Sex, nudity (the title is a clue, no?). But evildoers get punished. Overlong: needs a disciplined edit. But so much to recommend it

Great acting, Great staging, Great cast, Engaging, Intense at times

See it if you want a 3 hr. slice of teen romance & drama in an intimate setting. Its like a fast paced telenovela in one sittin (like CW's Riverdale).

Don't see it if you don't care about teen issues (love, sex, drugs, friendship, betrayal, incest?... & murder!)- although these are adult issues too anyway.

Also It's a refreshing theatrical piece to see a fast paced pseudo soap wit... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Intense

See it if For exciting, edgy theatre with a very strong cast to back up the intensity, challenging and thought provoking theatre

Don't see it if You are sensitive to nudity, gunshots, and high intensity situations, this show is not for the faint hearted, this is anything but feel-good

74
Edgy, Ambitious, Great staging

See it if This is a macabre soap opera w/no depth or takeaway. Just a train wreck from which you cannot look away. Side note: Watch the actors' shoes!

Don't see it if you don't like long plays (3 hours), leaving w questions about character motivations (plot holes), or not caring about characters.

85
Intense, Epic, Raunchy, Riveting, Dark

See it if you hated high school and appreciate a wild, well-staged, "everybody dies" style dark comedy.

Don't see it if you're not up for incest, murder, self-harm, slur-slinging, and all manner of bad teenage behavior.

Fucked up, Shocking, Modern

See it if You like shows that shock you. Sex and revenge excite you. You want to experience modern teenagers at their most extreme.

Don't see it if Any of the following trigger you: nudity, cuss words, self harm, pot, incest. You don't like to feel seen by the actors.

Clever, Stylish, Edgy, Raunchy, Too long!!!

See it if you'd like a dark "Jacobean Revenge Comedy." FMK is Tis Pity She's A Whore 2017. Great staging, lots of talent/ beauty on display. Wild ride

Don't see it if you are offended by sex, drugs, etc. 10/27 stopped after Act 1 for actor injury; but impressive 90 min. Needs deep cuts, but fresh/new/cool.

Also FMK feels so of-the-moment, but it really captures the spirit of Jacob... Read more Read less

Clever, Great staging, Riveting, Needs editing, Entertaining

See it if You want a high energy, well-trained cast that keeps you inyterested in the story. You enjoy modern takes on classical theatre.

Don't see it if You want a well-edited script: some scenes & side characters could've been cut. With intermission, show clocks in @ 3 hours!

Tis pity it's unedited, Excellent acting company, Great update on jacobean revenge tragedy, Held my interest thru 3 hours, Great design, direction, choreography

See it if Jacobean drama updated, excellent cast/direction/staging/choreography high school revenge MeanKids comedy, can hold your interest for 3 hrs

Don't see it if homicide, incest, fightclubishness, entitlement, teenagers, moms with cancer, prom, 1.3/4hr 1st act, simulated sex would drive you over edge

Also I've always been fascinated by the excess of the Jacobean [Tis Pity Sh... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Raunchy, Cast injury cancelled act2, but this hi-energy frenetic non-stop love/hate fest was quite arresting. love is a wrestling match/battlefield.

See it if You want to see a big cast of talented and attractive young people give their all--physically and emotionally--to portray youth gone wild.

Don't see it if You are offended by crude language and all kinds of misspent youth bad behavior. Not for those who are prissy or prudish.

“Vicious teenagers do battle in modern-day Connecticut in James Presson's Jacobean-style revenge comedy, directed by Sash Bischof...The show begins with promising stylishness, but despite a talented and attractive young cast, it unravels completely just as the noose should be tightening.
