New York Theatre Review

“A brutally humorous, savagely truthful tale of...two high school honors students whose love language is physical and psychological harm...This fierce ensemble doesn’t miss a beat, turning MacCarthy’s cutthroat banter into music as Tremblay’s direction makes the piece soar...MacCarthy has written a quick-witted ode to all of us out there just trying to do our best with the truths we’ve been given...In a very fun, kick-ass way.” Full Review

Ambitious, Clever, Dizzying, Edgy, Great acting

See it if You like psychosexual teen-girl friendships brought to excruciatingly-stylized life. You love incendiary dialogue, dark humor, and ambiguity

Don't see it if Female pain makes you laugh. If you're squeamish, idealize/fetishize teen girls, are sexist, or need clear resolutions and explanations.

Funny, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Raunchy, Relevant

See it if I say thought-proving, because my BFF, who liked it, and I had discourse afterwards. It's a good dark comedy, not great. Makes a good cheap

Don't see it if Night out. Don't see if opposed to animal cruelty, harsh language, and sexual violence. Makes you re-evaluate meaning of friendship & McD!

Edgy, Intense, Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Entertaining

See it if You want to see an interesting play about flawed high school students trying to survive. Well acted, interesting design.

Don't see it if Well made and speaks to a truth, but sometimes it went a little over the top to ram a point home and it would lose me.

Dark, Absorbing, Edgy, Intense, Macabre

See it if You want to see a dark twisted case-study in toxic relationships. It's darker than Heathers, more in line with The Virgin Suicides.

Don't see it if You are especially upset by graphic depictions of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.

Also "And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together... Read more Read less

Intimate venue / ok staging, Great use of music (scene-changes), Disturbing / intense / dark / silly

See it if you want to see extremely intelligent high school students conspire to do stupid life-threatening crap.

Don't see it if you're disturbed by blatant bullying; physical & mental abuse; animal cruelty; sexual violence; slander threats; needle use; bloody scenes.

Also No freaking Playbill. NOT COOL.... Read more Read less

Funny, Great acting, Indulgent, Banal, Entertaining

See it if You want to be entertained for 90 mins w/ a pretty ginned up drama about mean high school girls. Enjoyable if you didn't think too hard.

Don't see it if You want a thoughtful play that takes its characters' motivations seriously and doesn't spin off into the absurd.
