"Best of Three" by Nurit Chinn is a dark and funny world premiere about our compulsion to relive a past that haunts us.
On the eve of their 10th high school reunion, two estranged friends, Bo and Ted, reconnect at a bar night. But with the presence of Bo’s new girlfriend, the night soon devolves into a violent bacchanal of psychosexual gamesmanship.
The play explores survivors’ reflex to reenact the circumstances of their trauma. With jaw-dropping theatrical twists and turns, provocative characters, and an ending likely to be remembered by audience members for a long time, this show from two internationally produced artists is not to miss. Think: "Promising Young Woman" meets "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf".
And in a supposedly post-#MeToo era, "Best of Three" feels urgent: a dissection of imperfect victimhood and imperfect recovery.
