Sarah Ashley's one-act comedy is an uncharacteristically understated and tender story for the Annoyance Theatre. Two teenage brothers riff off each other, negotiate a love triangle, and seek out every possible means of getting high in a sort of vignette-filled Dazed and Confused for the Generation Y set. The teens' progressive parents (but really, who in the world is liberal enough to talk about rimming in front of their kids?) battle the kids' older dirtbag friend, Viktor, for influence, creating a unique angle on the coming-of-age story. The collaboratively written sketch dialogue and scene structures don't always lend themselves particularly well to the ambitious overarching material, which ends without much payoff, but it's an often quietly funny trip down nostalgia lane. —Dan Jakes
