Michael has a new girlfriend and has just bought the apartment of his dreams. It seems that his life should be perfect. Little does he know that his hell is just beginning. In 'Fulfillment,' playwright Thomas Bradshaw tackles the question: what makes us happy?
See it if shows absurdity of working in Amazon-like fulfill ctr; movingly shows lack of "fulfillment" & hopelessness of lives of 4 American types
Don't see it if after hilarious opening scenes (how a New Yorker is a fish out of water in NMexico) the play flags and by the end has petered out entirely
See it if you appreciate a distinctive POV that evokes, via design & action, the pressures on an upwardly mobile black man. It gets under the skin.
Don't see it if showing skin and simulated sex, up close & impersonal, makes you uncomfortable. Discomfort of the senses & sensibilities is the point here.
See it if you want comments on race and happiness snuck in behind nudity, inventive staging, and subtle comedy. Was slow at times, but overall good.
Don't see it if you don't want to be confronted head on (no pun intended) with male genitalia. You want a more direct examination on racism and fulfillment.
