A New York apartment play, 2011, but something’s wrong – terribly wrong. Someone was murdered. And what’s that god-awful sound? Tonight, nightly news investigates. Stay tuned for an exclusive interview with the murderer. Or the playwright. Or the playwright’s murderer.
See it if you are interested in the process of developing a play based on a devistating personal experience and the effect of that work on the writer.
Don't see it if you require a unified production with a clear progression. This performance is divided between an absurdist play & a dramatic monologue.
See it if you are willing to see what seems like an early reading of an absurdist play , with one major surprise by the author.
Don't see it if you want to see a coherent idea fully developed.
See it if you like to support new work & young playwrights. There are some good elements, but they don't work together. I liked the author's monologue
Don't see it if you expect a play that makes sense; this seems like 3 separate ideas smashed together. The set is sparse and unattractive. Frankly, tedious.

See it if you love absurd/zany theatre with a touch of true crime (that mostly centers on a straight white woman's story)
Don't see it if you want a cozy evening of theatre; strong writing; you want theatre that examines true crime fascination & unpacks white female victimhood
