About the show

In this dark comedy, two female roommates decide to pick a guy, any guy, and take advantage of him, to vent their man-caused frustrations. More…

From the show:

It's a hot summer evening and Julie Rodgers has had a bad day. Her boss made a pass at her that she rejected, so she got a pink slip with her check. Julie's broke and disillusioned, so she drinks and turns on the stereo full blast to make the pain go away. Then her roommate comes home in the midst of an eating frenzy; her boyfriend has gone back to his wife, so Alice has turned to food to forget. Julie suggests another way to vent their man-caused frustrations: they should pick a guy, any guy, and take advantage of him. Men have been doing it for years; why can't a woman? Enter a pizza delivery man who agrees to come in and share a beer with them. The evening gets crazier, wilder, angrier, and very, very funny.

WARNING - This play contains frank discussion of sexual assault and rape, as well as physical violence with the implication of sexual assault.

Thought-provoking, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if Convenient location Interesting topic.. Nice small theater Credit for effort

Don't see it if Not our favorite Some talent but not for all

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Dated

See it if you want to see very dated comedy that was probably considered avant garde when first performed.

Don't see it if you don't recognize the historical period the play came out of. An author who could not escape the stereotypes she grew up with.

Also I would like to say the weak part of this play was the first act, much... Read more Read less

Dated, Offensive, Wow, why?!

See it if You would find it amusing to hear a bunch of jokes inspired by the pizza guy saying that his pizzas will get "stiff" if not delivered soon

Don't see it if A cutesy sitcommy play about rape? Sets feminism back to before the era that the play was written. Not clever, not funny, just offensive

69
Dated, Funny, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you enjoy a dark comedy about 2 female losers trying to rape the pizza delivery guy.

Don't see it if you're offended by some raunchy talk and topic of sex, seduction, rape, loud music and screaming

Also Not very realistic. Would seem it should have been much easier to rape... Read more Read less

Slow, Disappointing, Dated, Cliched

See it if You want to visit a great old theatre. The play itself should be a pass...

Don't see it if You don't like dated, weak story lined shows. The script was weak.

Also the first act was ok. The intermission was way to long. The 2nd act wa... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Excruciating, Edgy, Disappointing, Funny

See it if You want to see a work that explores gender dynamics in a shallow way. It's ambitious in its reach.

Don't see it if The women feel like they belong in different shows. The approaches don't mesh. Deeper bits would be derailed by screwball comedy

71
Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if You are interested in 70s culture. The acting is passionate. The set is perfect for the time period.

Don't see it if The story is a bit dated. The sexual violence is not explicit, but may be disturbing to some.
