We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Theater Thursday - The Hope Hypothesis

We were given free tickets to The Hope Hypothesis for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.


 


What: The Hope Hypothesis 

Where: Voyage Theater Company production at The Sheen Center
             18 Bleeker St.
             New York, NY

Who: Recommended for Ages 15 and Up

When: Through November 15, 2019



Mom's view: Amena is young law student of Syrian birth. When she goes to a government facility to finalize her immigration paperwork,  the clerk takes one look at her birth certificate and panics which sets off an unfortunate series of events. The Hope Hypothesis is a timely show about the current state of the world where living under the constant threat of terrorism has people on edge and ready to jump to conclusions and react negatively at the slighest provocation. Watching this show is like driving by an accident, you don't know whether to stare right at it or look away in horror.  However, in this case, you will definitely want to watch.  The Hope Hypothesis is an extremely well written, well cast and terrifically performed play. If you like shows that don't try to offer any easy answers but really make you think, you wil definitely like this show.



And that's Mom's view. 

Tune in Saturday for Still More Theater Saturday.
