OK, so this play is hilarious. It does the pop-culture extension thing better than any number of face plants I've seen in that risky genre. But maybe it was inevitable—we all sort of knew what would happen after the mother of all ditch days. In Christian Missonak and Andrew Bentley's spoof, Ferris (played by Missonak) has become a colossal deadbeat. The hour-long play follows him through a nightmarish inverted version of his day off as he scrambles to revive a nonexistent relationship with his estranged daughter, Reagan (Kayla Cole), by dragging her out of school for her 18th birthday. Missed cues and flubbed transitions abounded, but on the whole this is a spirited take on the sordid aftermath of a teenage legend. —Max Maller
