Say Something Nice | Review

From the mind of Sam Brooks (Riding in Cars with (Mostly Straight) Boys) comes Say Something Nice which isn’t so much a play, as it is an experience.

In this world you come across a lot of dicks out there, and sometimes you do and say things that makes you one of them- don’t do that.

Say Something Nice will teach us all how to be nice to each other, which isn’t too hard.

Often enough we’re too bogged down in our own lives to really care about the things we do and say, or more likely the things that we don’t do and say.

What we do, as opposed to what we think, defines who we are.

We may think we’re being nice, but unless your actions back this assertion you’re just someone who thinks nice things.

Say Something Nice is rather confronting, but not in a bad way.

You aren’t going to be lectured at by someone wearing robes telling you how to treat each other, save that nonsense for Sundays.

It’s a thought-provoking piece of multimedia theatre that doesn’t just require your participation, but your willingness to think about what ‘nice’ is and whether or not you’ve applied it at all in your actions.

The show is limited to about 20-30 people, which should make for an interesting session.

Here’s some advice: bring an open mind and your best poker-face, I reckon.
