I was so depressed after the election and my friend was kind enough to give me her ticket to keep my mind off a stinging loss.
I thought I can get away from it completely. But the plot of Underground Railroad Game where the Yankees help free the slaves while the Southerners tries to capture them made me think how divided our country is.
Ars Nova has been churning out excellent plays year in and year out and this play is no exception. With excellent performances from Jennifer Kidwell and Scott Sheppard, this “game within a play” structure is genius. What a way of discussing a heavy subject matter like “slavery”. And the issues from the past still rings true today.
Scott Sheppard has an extensive full frontal nudity towards the end of the play as Jennifer undressed him and he masturbated at the end of that scene (covered though). Scott has showed us his cut cock, bushy pubes and tight balls in a well lit scene hiding nothing.
I didn’t know how our group have missed this play which have been running since September. (I admit I was so engrossed with the election the past few months).
Even though is is sold out. There is a waitlist 30 minutes before the show. Most of those who were in the waitlist were able to see the show that night. So tomorrow is the last performance and it’s worth trying to get in.
NUDITY RATING: 5 (Extended full frontal from Scott in a well lit scene)
