Definitely appeals to academically-minded theatre artists. Love the absurdity and the rules of the world in Jen Tries Vacation. Jon Gentry, Brian Wallace, and Allison Youngberg deliver crisp performances in Jen Tries Vacation that allow the meaning of the symbols to stand out, and offer plenty of laughs to keep minds open and engaged in order to unpack some consequences of benevolent racism and benevolent sexism.... full review

The show is good. It's funny, engaging, but also very dry. There's underlying theatre references (Chekov style, etc.) that are really cool to look out for, and the cast seemed to be having a great time. Btw, the show ran about 45 minutes, so there's plenty of time to catch this show AND another one right after--don't let the run time turn you away. It's a cool show!... full review

Enjoyed it. I like that the playwright had the confidence to create two very different one acts with similar themes instead of feeling he needed to make them all of one larger piece. There's something to be said for someone who understands the audience and respects their intelligence enough not to belabor a point. It's less than an hour in total and that's really good. I've gone to shows in the festival that are somewhat self-indulgent and never seem to end. This was enjoyable, never seemed long and gave you something(s) to think about. It's better than "pretty good" but I feel "amazing" is overused. How about very good? Somewhere between amazing and pretty good.... full review

Don't miss this show! It's your chance to see the talented work of an intelligent, insightful, entertaining young playwright named G.D. Kimble. And to see a raft of excellent performances in the service of his comic, probing, satirical vision. Kudos to the creative team for bringing these plays to Fringe! ... full review
