Description

A bitingly comic, strikingly timely satire for the stage, which asks if we can ever break free from the people we used to be.



'A meditation on memory, ageing and lost hopes... Jacobs-Jenkins's sharply sculpted dialogue teases out the tensions that exist beneath the bonhomie... this is a writer who enjoys playing games with conventions. Nothing is quite what it seems... a piece which continually plays tricks with perspective'



'Rich and alive... flares with subtle brilliance... The Comeuppance is good theatre with eloquent outbursts and awkward wit. Its themes play in the mind after the curtain comes down and it is a relief to see theatre dealing with the Covid years, staring its death in the face'



'Dark but laugh-aloud drama'



'A bold look at a painful school reunion with a daring theatrical flourish'



'A post-Covid play haunted by death, rich in ideas, sometimes profound'



'An eerie drama of mortality and memory that exerts an insidious fascination... a melancholic, meditative piece with a dash of gallows humour; an elegant danse macabre... Jacobs-Jenkins spins the interconnecting threads of memory and attachment with arachnid delicacy and skill... hypnotic and brooding'



'A smart dark comedy about millennials hitting middle-age... droll and compelling'



'Waspishly humorous and darkly metaphysical'



'Compelling... original and thought-provoking... entertaining yet hard-hitting'



'Gripping and funny... inventively grapples with universal fears of mortality'



'Searingly funny and abruptly sad'



'An eloquently rueful meditation on how briskly and brutally youthful dreams evaporate... sharply perceptive... hits an emotional jackpot'



'Funny and engaging'



Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is a Brooklyn-based playwright and producer, and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist. His other plays include An Octoroon, Gloria and Appropriate.
