Présentation de l'éditeur
The dead of winter, Long Beach Island, New Jersey, Charlie, has hit rock bottom. Away from the rest of the world, this perfect escape is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. A hired beauty, a fireman, and an eccentric British real estate agent desperately trying to stay in the country all suddenly find themselves tangled together in a beach house where the mood is anything but sunny.
This pithy piece portrays a scenario of attempted suicide with mordant humour, where a basis of social alienation leads to unexpected connections. The richly-drawn characters are quick-witted and narcissistic yet self-aware and the dialogue is fluid and witty.
All New People is centred around a clever concept which works as a catalyst for both angst-fuelled scrutiny and morbid humour.

All New People is one of those straight off the page, laugh out loud scripts. You don't need much characterization for the words to jump to life, which is both a blessing and a curse to some actors. I would like to have seen this play stretched a bit more (it is a straight through one-act, no intermission), and for Braff to give a bit more attention to his protagonist Charlie. Develop his character, as opposed to sticking him on the stage to be the butt of early jokes, as well as a talking point for Braff's sometimes roaming premise. In due time. I have faith he'll work out the kinks.
Overall: All New People is a strong first outing. Laugh out loud. Fans of Zach Braff will savor it: and for us theatre folk, hopefully there's more to come.
I always like the way Braff blends drama and comedy and this had nice elements of both.
Definitely recommend to people who enjoy reading plays and to those who maybe haven't tried reading plays.
