The only thing is that I’d love for it to be longer, I think there are some excellent opportunities to flesh out these characters and their situations even further.
My overall impression
American Conspiracy is absolutely awesome, this thrilling play takes you through so many ups and downs, it’s an experience that you will certainly remember. Ben Schwartz’s writing is incredibly nuanced, clever, witty, thought-provoking, intense, and innovative, his dialogue allows for the characters to explore the deepest parts of themselves and unleash the inner beasts that reside inside them. Aiding the writing is Matt Ritchey’s superb direction, which pushes the already high stakes in the play to an astronomical level that left me as a viewer on the edge of my seat. All 6 actors were fantastic, embodying their unique and complex characters with a sincere touch of humanity, allowing for their many layers to shine and be treasured. This is an absolute must see for this fringe festival, I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying it.
