About the show

This Is Not A Theatre Company presents an interactive homage to the importance of radical play for a healthy society.  More…

From the show:

What do mass murderers have in common? They are play-deprived. What happens to rats when you deprive them of play? They die. The answer to inefficiency is not more work, it’s play. And the opposite of play is not work, it’s depression. Come PLAY! with us. PLAY! is an interactive dance-theatre piece co-created by Charles Mee, Erin B. Mee, Jonathan Matthews, and Ezra Brain, with additional text by Stuart Brown, Frederick Winslow Taylor, and Buzzfeed. Performed by Jonathan Matthews.

Great dancing, Ambitious, Confusing

See it if Joyful movements of dance & words. The actor’s approach was very honest with a believable Intention to bring love to this experimental work.

Don't see it if Because this experimental work was a bit disconnected and missed its mark despite the spirited attempt to infuse love, happiness & harmony.

Indulgent, Disappointing, Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing

See it if you want a stereotypical modern art/contemporary theatre piece... It felt like a parody. Absurdist, barely immersive, and just confusing

Don't see it if you want a connected story, traditional theatre, or real immersive theatre. It's a strange creation, well performed, but I was left bemused

Sweet, Joyous, Improvised, Confusing, Experimental

See it if See it if you’d like experiential theater? That feels like a yoga dance pop poetry improv with adult Gymboree added. Fun and strange.

Don't see it if Don’t see if you hate to participate, or if you prefer traditional theater. It’s a personal expression of joy and inclusion and playfulness

"A solo dance-theater piece performed by Jonathan Matthews on the subject of playing - as in playing games...Matthews rants, lectures…and at the same time moves his body in expert ways…In the second half the performer brings the audience on stage… to play together."
