Absurd, disjointed, lacking direction, fine acting

See it if you want to see a play that quickly loses it focus and goes off in multiple directions

Don't see it if you want a show understands that even "it is" has a direction Read more

Disappointing, Intense, Ambitious

See it if You like darker, borderline performance art theatre.

Don't see it if You prefer a straight forward play, with traditional narrative. Read more

"A fearless one-act...Although the majority of the play attempts to deconstruct important timely topics such as social justice, consent, abortion, fracking, air pollution, and maternal instinct, there are a few wry moments of lost-in-translation humor...Just when I thought that ‘The Buffalo Play’ had stalled in a didactic zone of moral storytelling, it veered off into a surprising direction that added a new layer to the narrative...I entered the theater a skeptic and exited it a fan.”

"Sound (designed by Peter Musante), lighting (Mason Wagner), costumes (Sarah Kelly) and props (Ben Seratt) converge in perfect unison, thanks to the talents of this production team. Ultimately, the words are stronger than the actors, but director Wagner weaves them together into true and powerful moments."

"'The Buffalo Play' asked many compelling questions and had good performances all around. Aside from the occasional young-activist stereotype line it was a very well-written and engaging story with a strangely beautiful ending that I don’t want to give away here. You’ll definitely walk out of the theatre feeling a little more connected to the world around you."
