About the show

A revival of a 2012 Off-Broadway hit, this dark comic drama centers around group of Generation Me college students in the aftermath of a wild campus party. More…

When morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, self-interest collides with the truth and the resulting storm of ambiguity makes it hard to discern just who's a victim, who's a predator, and who's a Future Leader of America. All that's certain is when the veneer of loyalty and friendship is stripped back, what's revealed is a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive.

See it if You want to see a show so current it could have been written from today’s headlines. Smart twist on subject keeps it fresh and interesting.

Don't see it if You don’t want to see a show about current events. Serious social and sexual issues are dealt with honestly and frankly. It’s not fluff!

See it if you don't mind a slightly dated show about date rape and revenge. The acting was very energetic, especially considering the intimate venue.

Distasteful but timely, Neil labute-ish, No one wins, Great cast, atmosphere & intent, Thought-provoking

See it if Me Generation talent, immersive atmosphere, ripped from the headlines topic, Stella Adler stylings, commitment to story telling please you

Don't see it if stylized violence, rape, millennials searching, bagging relationships in crisis, claustrophobic basement setting, would give you pause

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Edgy, Uneven

See it if the me generation and it's moral ambiguities interest you. Good young performers. Interesting twists & turns.

Don't see it if violence, date rape, some illogical & unlikely choices made by characters would turn you off.

Entertaining, Great acting, Needs better direction, Relevant

See it if you enjoy young actors doing a very good job with difficult, ambiguous material.

Don't see it if a lack quality direction annoys you. The actors needed to be slowed down. Much of the delivery was too fast, scenes rushed

Confusing, Intelligent, Mostly good acting, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you're interested in shows about college kids, sexual and personal morality, the conflict between personal ambition and morality.

Don't see it if you aren't willing to put up with too many unresolved issues,plot twists that go off into the land of soap opera, a couple of miscast actors

Also the first act was really, really good. (Pun intended.) The second act ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Quick paced, Timely & relevant, Great acting & directing

See it if You're up for a beautifully cast, smoothly directed, well staged ensemble whose collective acting is deceptively effortless and on point.

Don't see it if The possibility of sexual assault or terrifically realistic stage fighting are triggers, or if the college campus lives of Millenials bore.

Also Smooth and inventive blocking by director Adam Martin makes the best u... Read more Read less

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intense, Absorbing

See it if You're interested in a well-acted show about some of the perils of modern sexual relationships. Somewhat hard to hear, but worth the effort.

Don't see it if You are triggered by stories about rape or struggle to hear when actors speak softly when facing away from you.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Resonant, Disappointing

Great acting, Resonant, Masterful

Also This made me want to campaign to prohibit on campus drinking! The show... Read more Read less

Clever, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if The play gets the feel and voice of the new generation right. Money is still the root of everything (good or bad), no matter what one says.

Don't see it if Despite uneven casting and plot point problem, the play works. Personally I am not a fan of intimate staging, especially in close quarters.

Relevant, Engaging, Intimate setting

See it if you enjoy watching the millennial generation try to understand itself (it can't), an energetic ensemble and supporting young theater in NYC.

Don't see it if you expect a play to be able to handle the tough questions it raises, or if you dislike moral ambiguities that may seem artificial at times.

See it if Intimate staging fueled with moral dilemma. Intriguing to see how one night of sexual violence unfolds and cascades.

Don't see it if Selfish characters, questionable progression and ambiguous conclusion. Perhaps packing too much than it can handle

Absorbing, Funny, Great acting, Edgy, Great staging

See it if great acting within an intimate staging experience that turns subtlety from College Humor to a raw Ayn Rand type story is your thing.

Don't see it if rape, locker room (college) humor, intense sexuality or an Ayn Rand philosophy centered on self-indulgence offends you.

Also The internet has scenes from other earlier productions. However, the e... Read more Read less
