What I liked

Each play quickly establishes itself and the characters in the story. But within that framework the writers and actors are not afraid to take chances and be quirky, resulting in quite a few laugh out loud moments.

What I didn't like

I would pair three of these plays together (Front Lines, Whitefish, & Closet at Supper) that are more reality based and naturalistic in tone and expand them into a show of similar one acts, and then take the other 3 (Francis of The Seregeti, Metro Sex Y’All, and SoulMates), and expand them into a show of more absurdist plays.

My overall impression

A series of a half dozen entertaining short one acts that run the gamut from the internal monologue of a person at prayer to cutting edge absurdist comedies.

Staying relevant is a full-time job, and the last thing you want to be is #Cancelled. A washed up child star. An up-and-coming music producer. An “influencer-by-accident”. What do they have in common? An internet scandal big enough to break them.
