Thursday Night, Now Playing at the Lerner Black Box
Written by Bwog Staff
In which S. Alex Kudroff tells us what makes B&W staffer Will Snider’s play different from all other plays…
“Everything Different” is college compressed into 85 minutes. Will Snider manages to capture the essence of a night of drunken mayhem in a dorm suite where conversations roam from love to sex, depression, drugs, revolution, and of course, sports.
The play begins with the gay liberal-revolutionary reading the newspaper and saying “fuck” to the world. The rest of the play follows in this cynical tone, only with more alcohol. Throw in the guy who believes in love and hopes to stop hooking up with random girls, the girl who only believes in the practical form of love (anyone up for a Symposium?), the guy who is madly in love with a girl from high school who doesn’t actually care about him, the athlete who just wants some drugs, and of course, the drug dealer who supposedly wears sunglasses indoors (though he doesn’t actually on stage).
As more alcohol is consumed, the characters open up more, and the audience is left in that bittersweet intermediate state between laughter and tears.
And if the alcohol, drugs, and depression don’t make you want to go, then maybe the prospect of seeing two guys kiss on stage will.
