Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if A good story that talks about issues relevant today. Good acting, good story.

Don't see it if If you dont like a metoo story or small theater, small setting.

Great writing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if you are interested in a provocative take on date rape from an outsider perspective.

Don't see it if date rape is a trigger or if you aren't willing to at least consider more than 1 side of a complex issue.

Clever, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if If you want to see a play about today, and just how complicated sexual assault is when what exactly happened is not clear. This was great!

Don't see it if If you don't like productions that put the emphasis on the script and the acting of it.

"The actors playing these teenagers bring heart and honesty to rather challenging roles. Romeo’s decision to set the action among high schoolers is a strong one...The script addresses this tricky subject matter deftly, never exonerating the perpetrator, never sounding like an after-school special, never blaming the victim for drinking...Benko’s guiding hand combined with the actor’s strong performances make Romeo’s play dynamic, challenging, and memorable."

“One of the most inspiring parts of this heartening play is the relationship between Jenna and Kevin; the latter treats the former with such trusting love...Gabriel’s vulnerability showcased such admirable strength, allowing the audience to root for her...Towards the end of the play we get an equally poignant scene between Kate and Benny...Benny gives a kind of hope that will humanize even the most skeptical audience member...a truly heart-warming final moment.”
