Uneven, Entertaining

See it if into a dark comedy about suicide and organ harvesting that is also a rom-com. Some hilarious and touching moments. Natural acting.

Don't see it if while there is an outrageous scene involving a kidney, the dark part is timid as it needs to get back to the rom-com.

Offal Endings is billed as "a dark comedy" but it is more of a drama with some comedic elements. It grapples with complicated subjects and is not always successful. It "reads" better than it plays, which is not to say that it is a bad play, just that it needs more structure in its story development and execution. The topics it touches on are important given the increased commercialization in the delivery of medical care and, more importantly, psychological care in the complex socio-political environment of the present and near future economy. It presents challenging ideas but doesn’t clarify the challenges those ideas represent.

Shades of Michael Crichton’s paranoiac medical milieu are melded with Paddy Chayefsky’s wild societal prescience, for a thoughtfully entertaining 90 minutes. However, this premiere production is structured as a series of brief scenes, some are too brief and some silent ones particularly at the start seem extraneous. The result is that at times the play comes across more as a film treatment rather than a fully realized stage piece.
