Inspired by my time at Bennington College, this is a play about sex themed parties, aspiring alt artists, spoon sculptures, tortured romance, hookups and trying very very very hard.

    An absurdist descent into youth and their desire to connect. In poetic textspeak, the characters take us on a journey through an evening of hook-ups and self-discovery. Scene 7 is a delightful, almost operatically staged sex scene. I could almost hear the lines sung from the characters' individual spotlights.
    This would be a fun show to "mount"and even more fun to watch.

    Saw this wonderful play staged last year in Manhattan. Unapologetically weird and brimming with life, Weingarten's dialogue and perspective is truly unique.

    This was a gloriously hilarious read. Rich satire with characters that are, at once, blazingly outlandish and full of nuance and heart. A well-observed, theatrically heightened view of relationships, longing, intimacy, and small liberal arts colleges. This had me in stitches throughout, but some of the scenes, particularly Jackie and Alaska's direct-address-"duet" of sorts rang with the brilliant truthfulness of totally uncensored inner life. I hope to see this someday!
