Make Believe - Off Broadway Sept 2019
Playbill / Program - 2Nd Stage - Tony Kiser Theater
“Make Believe” is a rich and moving contemporary drama — the kind that builds itself from fragments that could just as easily fail to bind. With the help of a toy chest of tricks Ms. Wohl has in store, they do bind here; her formal daring, her precise calibration of humor and despair, her confidence and anger and empathy, all mingled, lift “Make Believe” into the realm where even naturalism becomes a great mystery.
Fittingly it achieves that entirely within a set (by David Zinn) depicting an attic playroom, complete with art supplies, a clubhouse fort, a hideous Cabbage Patch doll and a toy kitchen. There in the mid 1980s, the four Conlee siblings, ages 5 through 12, take hilarious refuge from the real world below by compulsively re-creating it in their games. Over “dinners” of plastic food, and in arguments that blur the line between childish bullying and adult fury, they borrow and repurpose their elders’ clichés.
