Check It Out: F*ck! Marry! Kill! with Molly Prather
There’s something about combining childhood games with sexual exploits, as told by an attractive woman, that is...well...awesome. And apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre on Franklin has noticed this anomaly as well, and has smartly chosen to re-up the wonderful Fuck! Marry! Kill! for a couple of upcoming nights that should not be missed, including this Wednesday, March 25th at 8pm.Fuck! Marry! Kill!, a one woman show written and performed by the vivacious Molly Prather, has already seen success at UCB on it’s first go-round, and one must imagine that Molly is just as sharp and honest as ever.
The show itself loosely follows the format of the famous forced-choice game of the same name, wherein the player is given three names of known people and must decide who they would choose to fuck, marry, and consequently kill.
The premise, for Prather, is that this game is much more insightful than it may be given credit for, and the underlying intricacies the game presents should be more carefully examined in order to learn more about those around us, as well as ourselves. Of course, this is also a springboard for Prather to expound on her exploits in all three arenas. And while the balance may be a little skewed (she has not, to date, admitted to killing anyone), Prather is a strong performer who is able to acutely control the stories she is balancing.
