HANNAH AND THE DREAD GAZEBO by Jiehae Park at Oregon Shakespeare Festival

HANNAH AND THE DREAD GAZEBO by Jiehae Park at Oregon Shakespeare Festival

All the cringeworthy hallmarks of a neophyte playwright are on display here: Unnecessary profanity, inane dude patois, self-referential winks about playwriting, sitcom ham, wildly weird non sequitor lines presented as some sort of triumph, cartoon character exaggeration, awkward scene cutting, et al.

No doubt deeply autobiographical and full of meaning for the playwright – but not much here for the audience.

Even at a scant 90 minutes, seems to take forever to end.

Neck in neck horse race with THE LIQUID PLAIN for worst show ever seen at OSF.
