What I liked

Stevens unfolds the characters’ ulterior motives slowly throughout the show. Their behavior at points may seem strange, but he explains the odd choices with twists and discoveries made along the way. Very engaging from start to finish!

My overall impression

Acid Wash Love delves into relationships between men and women in a post-Me Too dating culture and poses the question many young people ask themselves: is seduction “okay” anymore? Stevens writes an excellent depiction of a modern American dude who “respects women” out of fear rather than morality. I loved the ideas that Stevens discusses and his spot on analysis of intimacy, or lack thereof, in the modern age. The timing and pacing of the script are excellent, and the actors stay engaged not only with each other but with the audience as well. Also, the free cookies are delicious.
