In the tradition of "Heathers" and "The Virgin Suicides," this dark world premiere explores the extremes of teenage friendships and rivalries. More…
Kora and Minnie are best friends. And honors students. And are plotting something involving a lot of money and a little blood. When their volatile relationship is threatened by Minnie’s friendship with awkward YouTube sensation Megan, all bets are off.
“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
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.
See it if you enjoy sharp writing and direction, twisted characters, excellent set/costume design, awesome music/sound design, and important topics.
Don't see it if realistic, onstage violence and sexual situations bother you. The character’s are pretty messed up. I loved it.
See it if Really captures teen language and dynamics. All 4 actors are great. Twisted story told in very well written snapshots.
Don't see it if You're depressed or have had a really bad day. This play is dark and disturbing, but there are some funny moments. Warning: graphic violence
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!
See it if You enjoy intense drama and are interested in teenage issues. Very intimate setting and it felt very real.
Don't see it if You want a light comedic performance. This was a dark show but very absorbing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
