Clubbed Thumb presents an encore presentation of this new play in which three sisters (no, not those ones) are stricken with a series of strange plagues. More…
Isabel’s got pains. Anne’s got slugs. And Genevieve doesn't want to talk about hers. She just wants you to eat the damn hummus (she made it!). Let's talk about family nightmares. I mean, uh, memories.
See it if you're open to something new/different. Fast-paced, wildly imaginative, funny, scary. Deals w/ gender gap, sisters, mothers, marriage, faith
Don't see it if you want cohesion, but fun to watch. Loses some steam along the way. Needs cuts/shaping. Strg acting; gr set. Some gr lines/insights.
See it if If you want to see a new work or a play as opposed to a musical.
Don't see it if If you want like ashow that has thought process and stay on point with that ptocess. This show has many thoughts not a lot of followthrough.
See it if Wild, creative absurdism. Fast paced surprising dialog. 3 sisters are haunted & connected by weird manifestations of male presence.
Don't see it if You don't enjoy weird non-linear plays that can't be understood literally. An unusual satirical perspective on the sexes.
See it if you can!! It's really such a unique piece of theatre that has to be seen to be believed.
Don't see it if you've never been a person. (Oh, you are a person? Go see this show.)
See it if Arbery's verbal gymnastics highlight this mash-up of The Three Sisters meeting Kafka Three top-notch female leads help ground the absurdity
Don't see it if Vibrant, zany first half slowly spins out of control into confusion & chaos before coming full circle. Yet funny set pieces hold interest
See it if you are looking for something very unexpectedly different, experimental and fun.
Don't see it if you are not ready to go with the sometimes very strange flow.
See it if you like experimental theater - this is loaded with lots of good moments, maybe too many as everything passes very quickly with great acting
Don't see it if you want a plot with a reasonable start, middle and end. This is a lot of action that skips around, holding your interest w/little result.
See it if Maybe not your traditional family, three sister that have a lot of weirdness in their life.
Don't see it if If you want a simple story. This story has a lot going on.
Also The three lead actresses were excellent.
See it if You like theater with a "downtown" vibe & find humor in lines like "We're getting married later. It's later. We're married" .
Don't see it if You'd find 3 crazy women beating up a guy & killing him (using a jar of tomato sauce to knock him in his man parts) crude & stupid.
See it if Jumping in time, mother appearing at the end proves incapable of successfully launching 3 daughters in life and preparing them for marriage.
Don't see it if You want a logical, linear plot and don’t like it when later means now. Somehow everyone muddles through and turns out sort of OK.
See it if Theater of the absurd, bordering on nonsensical. Time and location shifts makes it even more bizarre. The actors are able to tame the lunacy
Don't see it if Family dysfunction taken to fantastic lengths. I saw the film "Us" the same day. Some "Plano" characters are also doubles and very weird.
See it if you like the idea of striving for meaning but ultimately being permitted to not care. Interesting enough that I don't regret seeing it.
Don't see it if 3 neurotic, inconsolable sisters revolving around the men (not) in their lives. Chars never connect w/ each other, rarely w/ audience.
See it if You enjoy shows where the playwright experiments with storytelling. You like quirky downtown theatre about relationships.
Don't see it if You like a clear script written in everyday speech. This is a slightly heightened and twisted everyday speech
See it if A play that is odd and humorous. I think the playwright is the only person who can intelligently describe what we see onstage. Great cast
Don't see it if You are looking for a traditional play with an easy to follow story. Clubbed Thumb promotes plays that are" strange,funny, and provocative."
Also This play certainly fill the bill.
See it if You have an adventurous and open mind. Like energetic and mindbending surrealism. Have an interest in plays about family dynamics.
Don't see it if Need linearity and clarity, Are frustrated by surrealism.
Also Fine actors in this how -- especially the sisters and mother.
See it if Funny, clever, 3 brilliant actresses. Great set. Some interesting choreographed scenes. Plenty of weirdness. Sort of a modern fable.
Don't see it if You need to "get it" You're tired. Characters talk in manic pace and the action moves even faster. Takes a while to adjust to the rhythm.
See it if you want to see groundbreaking, utterly original material, unlike anything you've seen before.
Don't see it if you don't like super fast-paced dialogue, surrealism, magical realism and things that just can't be explained.
See it if Well acted, sometimes funny but weird, odd, confusing. How ? Why? What? At first edged and intriguing but then “ enough already”
Don't see it if Want a clear, plot, story or purpose
See it if you like language based surreal contempo plays, done perfectly.
Don't see it if you want traditional plays or perfection. The piece gets less interesting as it goes along.
See it if You want to see a fast pace, dynamic, absurd, very funny, experimental theater with great cast with strong female characters.
Don't see it if You do not like sexual referral, cursing, screaming, lots of family dynamics.
See it if Great cast. especially the 3 sisters, tell a story in quick flash time spanning many years. You have to suspend some belief,but worth it.
Don't see it if You don't like story telling that jumps back and forth in time.
See it if you like fast paced and ridiculous dialogue exploring family neurosis in an absurd and surreal way. Like to debate what it means.
Don't see it if mind that it may take a bit to figure out the rhythm of the play, that not everything may sense, and the meaning is possibly ambiguous.
See it if first prewiev and no glitches, good work by all actors,crazy but interesting show, relatives interaction in unique way, funny and intense
Don't see it if Experimental theatre is not for you, do not like mistique and want realistic plot and happy (kind off) ending
