Imagine for a moment that an audience at a play could channel surf between plays and genres. This is the premise of Paul Fleischman¿s play, 'Zap.' This play was test driven by four different high school drama departments, and the result is this published play. It is alternately a Shakespearean tragedy, a mystery, a drama taking place in two different families that have fallen on hard times 'one a Russian noble family, and one a family from the deep South', a couple who have encountered a corpse 'since it has worked so well in Weekend at Bernies' in their hotel room, and one self-absorbed monologue. Though there seems to be much critical acclaim for the play, I was unimpressed. Frankly, there were no characters that I could feel particularly attached to. It may be that this would be something that plays 'pardon the pun' out much better in performance. It is definitely a novel idea, and there were some humorous lines, but I wasn¿t awed by it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
