Superb top level production of a novel and rewarding new American play (by a Wenatchee-born writer) at HERE, New York’s downtown treasure. Reed Birney is extraordinary close up. Despite several topics that in lesser hands could feel quirky, this story is authentic and unexpected. A completely satisfying theatrical experience.
Different ethnic worlds move into the same orbit in this contemporary story from an ever globalizing and changing New York. A little too much going on, and the play suddenly expands in the final section instead of narrowing. Debargo Sanyal outstanding as young East Asian man who becomes a woman.
A crucial topic worthy of the theatre: drone warfare. Hannah Cabell is perfect for the role. An All American girl next door whose day job is incinerating third world men, women, and children. An original way to approach this disturbing topic. Chilling. And perhaps the first step toward changing something?
