I really appreciated Libby’s boldness in her very first written/directed play, with an enormous cast, multiple set changes, over a dozen different characters, and a representative overview of various difficult to discuss subjects. The decision to stage the play as a series of distinct scenes gave Trash a continuous sense of anticipation and making great use of the talented cast of actors.
What I didn't like
Some of the vignettes were a bit didactic and maybe could have used more of a ‘show don’t tell’ approach (particularly if the hope is to persuade those who are not already in alignment with the views being portrayed), but the intent was still well-intended and well-received.
My overall impression
An ambitious and thoughtful address to contemporary issues concerning gender and patriarchal supremacy, Libby touches on the tremendous frustration women experience in an interesting vignette format.
