The playwright has spoken a bit about her intentions. She really set out to capture the world of white male privilege and some of its toxicity. I'm not a fan of the play but I understand what she is trying to do. By her own admission, it's not from her own experience and it comes off, forgive the example, as some gay male erotica written by women does: All the details are there, and it's certainly clear who is getting screwed, but something feels off--the nuance and subtext are lacking. And ultimately, it's only interesting in fits.
