A new play by Paul Shoulberg (“Synthesis”, “Walter”) about what happens when a member of a fraternity kills himself. The ripple effect sends the remaining members into a tailspin that leaves them questioning loyalties and the social structure to which they've blindly subscribed. Directed by Stan Zimmerman (“Meet and Greet”, “Yes, Virginia”).

Reviews

With fraternity scandals once again making the evening's headlines, the time could not be riper for Pledge to put a personal face on frat house life. Beef up its script and Shoulberg's play could well have legs to take it even further beyond the Fringe.

It's a simple plot and the actors do a fine job fleshing out the thinly written characters. Their charm and gusto make the time fly past swiftly.

Playwright Paul Shoulberg has something very different in mind. His witty and incisively written play is a satiric look at the heart of white male privilege. Recognizing that a fraternity is the perfect incubator for the slickly amoral businessmen and lawyers who populate the upper class in America, he focuses on the next generation as they flex their muscles and learn how to access their power.

This may end up being one of my favorite plays at Fringe this year. Dark, funny, very disturbing.
