This is awkward and makes me cringe a little, but no one else is going to toot this horn so I’ve got to do it myself.
I’m in a play and, according to a few people, I’m doing a decent job with it.
Yes, this play is dark and triggering. It’s about sexual politics and my character isn’t someone I like, but that’s acting for ya. I’d love it if you could take the time to come and see this show. We have six performances left and must close Saturday evening. If money is an issue send me a message and I can give you a promo code to save a few dollars.
Now for some external validation aka don’t take my word for it, take theirs:
“While set in the 90s, the brutality of Theresa Rebeck’s What We’re Up Against feels as fresh as word of another Weinstein allegation.
The performances are incisive, the writing is crisp, and the subject matter is horrifyingly current with its piercing insight and powerful confrontations. … The supporting cast has some standout moments with Seth Ranaweera’s (Ben) faltering support and Sara Bynoe’s (Janice) surprising third act defence providing two highlights of the play.” – Vancouver Presents
“Sara Bynoe delivers the strongest performance of the evening as Janice. Janice is a bit of a flake and could easily appear as two-dimensional … but Bynoe is a confident performer who endows Janice with vulnerable, responsive life. I remember a particularly alive moment in which Janice blushes with embarrassment and anger.” – Colin Thomas
And one more from an acquaintance via email.
