Smartly scripted and well performed despite lack of character sympathy
This article is from 2011.
Smartly scripted and well performed, Scottish Sperm concerns three young Americans and their interweaving relationships. The lightning-fast deadpan delivery keeps things progressing at a steady clip, but the play’s strength is also its major failing – the characters are so articulate and highly-polished that it’s near impossible to develop any lasting sympathy with them. And that title is truly awful.
