Perfectly cast, beautifully acted, fluidly directed by Trip Cullman, and astutely designed. Halley Feiffer’s performance is smart, brave, and unsparing.
—Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Editor’s Pick! “In her 75-minute jaw-dropper, Feiffer delivers a performance that matches the brutal honesty of her writing.”
This play aims to explore the corrosive effects of the patriarchy on women and men alike — to examine the culture that has created the phenomenon of toxic masculinity and its insidious effects, and to start imagining ways we can break free.
Her investigation is as frank and unsettling as anything she has written...by turns hilarious and unflattering but always affecting portrait of a young woman drawn to someone she should know better than to love.
This aching world is penned by a writer who’s a connoisseur of the purest laugh, the highest joke, the laugh that can laugh at that which is unhappy. It makes the medicine go down. (Adam Greenfield, Associate Artistic Director)
