    Hilarious & frightening look at the conviction that comes from embedded familial manipulation.

    Whew! Uncovering covers a LOT of ground in a short piece: purity culture, misogyny, patriarchy, homophobia, toxic masculinity, power dynamics, and questions of self-worth, all stirred together in a very funny and unsettling stew. And while the targets may seem easy pickings at first, there are uncomfortable layers still to be peeled back. The comedy is sharp throughout, no matter who's getting skewered, and Beth Anne is a dynamite character for a young actress to sink her teeth into. Squicky, this play is. I like it.

    A fascinating look into the strange world of purity culture and an interesting portrayal of a young woman whose confidence and strength, though rooted in a perspective that seems fundamentally flawed, challenges us to examine the preconceived notions we may have about her belief system. This play is perfectly uncomfortable.
