Flavorpill Review by JK

With both college admissions and the job market growing increasingly competitive, the benefits of planning early become ever more apparent. Taking this to heart, Genevra (Anna Ishida) and Joshua (Ben Ortega) register their son for Bright Ideas, their town's premier nursery school, immediately following his birth. When they can't seem to get off the school's waiting list, they take matters into their own bloodied hands. Starting out as an amusing satire, Bright Ideas evolves into a stark black comedy about the lengths dedicated parents are willing to go to orchestrate their children's future. The Shotgun Players interpret this behavior with delirious excess.
