What I liked

The performances of the actors were great. They nailed the balance of dark comedy/absurdness/realness that this show provided. Savannah was so very relatable that it hurt. Emma did a phenomenal job portraying that character. Her groundedness in that role allowed the audience to connect with her. Savannah was the driving force that “made you think” about this show’s message and motivates us to stand up and take action.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

It is a strange feeling when a fictional dark comedy story feels- so real. Treason made you think. The moments of comedy made you laugh but also made you pause and go “Oh.” At times, I try to not watch too many political plays because, especially in the time we are in right now, they all start to sound the same. Treason strayed far from the path in the best way possible. This has been one of the best political plays I have seen. The angle they took to highlight our world today and the absurdity of some of it while creating an enjoyable experience that will make you laugh but also makes you think about what we are going through- opening a dialogue about what we can do to improve.
