Creates an ominous and tense atmosphere. Really like this one.
Well done. Some good physical theatricality at end.
Seeing this show in 2010 at Playwrights Horizons remains a major theatre-going high point. Tense, taut and gripping.
Solidly done. Like the three act structure.
Really heavy stuff. Fantastic theatricality and storytelling.
Well done. Interesting forms. Good subject matter.
Total crap. Far from somehow satirizing whitebread American suburbia, 70 minute plays like BLUEBERRY TOAST are in fact the thing itself – bland, derivative monoculture. Pretty typical of Yale Drama School as well. The best way to answer what this play is about: “It’s about how much money I spent on graduate school, and now I am supposed to write plays.”
Nothing there. The perils of really existing realism on stage.
Really not very good.
Provocative. Kind of like a room full of 10 Jeremys from Mike Leigh’s NAKED. Hard to see how many of these kids wouldn’t have been literally killed in the real world for their behavior. An interesting thought experiment perhaps.
