If I Forget – Review
Theater fans who like their plays with more grit will be in awe of If I Forget. The 2017 production offers a stark storyline that makes a powerful point about religion, family, and American life in the 21st century. In the current political climate, these discussions have taken on a certain edge that is thrown into sharp relief by If I Forget. Most audiences will have experienced tense incidents when family members find themselves at odds with one another, and this clever play explores these moments with biting humor. If I Forget promises to be a funny, honest, and compelling production.
The play catches up with liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer in the months just preceding 9/11. Fischer reunites with his two sisters to celebrate their elderly father’s birthday, and tensions begin to fray. The siblings argue as each holds dear their own memory of the family history, letting deep resentments rise to the surface. Moreover, there are arguments about Fischer’s controversial academic work and the growing difficulties of caring for an ailing parent. Secrets and antipathy threaten to take over If I Forget as the siblings struggle to negotiate their memories of the past in order to find a fruitful future.
If I Forget is daringly honest and intelligently humorous, handling its delicate subject matter with grace. The play deftly explores the dogged way that humans choose to hold on to their memories and opinions and the struggle to compromise with those closest to us. In the end, If I Forget ponders the depth of hurt that only our closest loved ones can inflict with a humor and heft that will keep audiences enthralled.
