See it if Office workers endure drab jobs while their true selves boil with loneliness, anxiety, crushes, and fantasies. Disturbing and moving.
Don't see it if You don’t like dark comedy that makes you feel uncomfortable.
See it if you like superb characterizations, young people struggling to find happiness and meaning, wonderful dialog, acting and direction.
Don't see it if you favor "light," frothy dialog, "escapist" theater and dislike loud, "in your face" characterizations.
"If the play’s surreal conclusion mystifies more than satisfies, Rosen’s bantering chitchat and the snappy enacting of it, etched through José Zayas’s sharp direction, maintains viewer interest for a fleeting eighty minutes."
"Lynn Rosen’s crackling is a blast of wit, broad humor, and sharp observations of how artists’ struggles mirror human nature. Etched into vivid relief by a superb cast, its characters are caricatures who ring true...The ending may be a bit overblown, but director José Zayas guides the cast through Rosen’s three-scene arc with a sure hand, eliciting delightfully funny and touching performances and bringing to life a hilarious and ultimately graceful story."
"'Washed Up On the Potomac' has a lot that will feel familiar to anyone who has ever worked in an office...Crystal Finn’s excellent portrayal of Sherri seems almost like an imagining of what Carrie White would be like had she stayed home from the prom...Though there are a few missteps, this a funny and thoughtful play that contemplates relationships in a close space. It’s an entertaining evening that gives its audience some food for thought."
