I love high school drama! It is comedy but also fragile, sensitive and caring. It shows beauty of youth.... full review

A fun play that digs so much deeper than just a teenage comedy. It clearly shows the angst of adolescents and the forming of ideas about trust, social media shaming, relationships, loyalty, abortion, forgiveness, and respect, as well as taking a look at sex education. Well worth the ticket price! ... full review

Funny and thoughtful comedy that unveils each main character bit by bit -- even the voice over "teacher". Strong performances by the entire cast and a truly delightful show... full review

This show was well directed, well acted, funny and relevant. I am a high school teacher and I always have a filter on when I see high school, teens and sexuality as the subject matter of a drama. I loved this show, and I would love to see a show like this presented to high schools across the country. When the show is over, it leads to lively discussion. It covers not only sexuality, but also teen friendships and issues of internet and privacy. I had a great time at this show.... full review

A timely, relevant, important piece of theater that integrates the impulsivity of youth with the messiness of relationships. How childish impulses have adult consequences. The piece crackles with humor and wit, and every character feels full of possibility, in that tragic-smalltown-Texas-stuck-here-forever kind of way ... full review

Gummy Worm was a great representation of what can happen when our country refuses to teach children proper sex-education, told in a creative and fitting setting by a group of fantastic actors. This play is edgy, but not so much to the point where actual high schoolers couldn't perform it, which I think would be the best and most impactful way to see it.... full review

Gummy Worm was the perfect show to start my Fringe 2022 theater going experience off on the right foot with! This show was perfectly cast and there were multiple surprises which kept me engaged. Definitely worth seeing! ... full review
JAKE JEFFERS certified reviewer June 04, 2022
A fun and simple show that reminds us of the importance of a proper and thorough sex education for youth, and the consequences should we fail to deliver. ... full review

This show perfectly captures that liminal period of every young person's life when they are just beginning how to navigate the world of their own sexuality and proclivities, too often burdened with attitudes imbued from their parents, given absurdly unhelpful advice from their educational institutions, dealing with the unfortunate permanence of social media and making mistakes all the while, as they attempt to become young adults.... full review
