What I liked

I loved the shows ability to use humor to shed light on uncomfortable social interactions. It was witty, incredibly fun, and the actor’s were amazing. My favorite sketch was “Suicide Pact”. All the actors we’re incredibly talented and very committed to their performance. And I really appreciated that this production included female actors, despite the title!

Tackling racism, sexism, or any other politically charged topic is always a risk. I feel this play was very thoughtful about being careful and sensitive regarding these topics. Working with women and people of color helped bring the required perspectives to tackle the themes of the show, and I think keeping your collaborative circle as diverse as possible is crucial while you keep tackling these tough dialogues. :)

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Very funny, fast-paced comedy about our current climate!
