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 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 homicide, incest, fightclubishness, entitlement, teenagers, moms with cancer, prom, 1.3/4hr 1st act, simulated sex would drive you over edge
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 You are offended by crude language and all kinds of misspent youth bad behavior. Not for those who are prissy or prudish.
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.
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
