BEST PLAY / WORST PLAY

BEST PLAY / WORST PLAY

A statistical send-up of what people most – and least – want to see in theatre. When taste and preference are analyzed and reproduced, the results are surprisingly personal. After amassing survey results from across the world, this lecture-style presentation with musical accompaniment shares what people most long for in live performance.

A festival opener, a key-note address, a companion piece alongside one of our other shows,¬†BEST PLAY / WORST PLAY¬†is 35 minutes of performance that illuminates our audience’s deepest yearnings.

Reviews.

  • "The show was hilarious and by far the best thing I saw at PuSh. Symington Fedy's acting was subtle but it was her small changes in expression which made mundane things funny. Without resorting to obvious angst or pathos she was funny and transfixing." - GEIST Magazine
