The premise of Mara Nelson-Greenberg’s play “Do You Feel Anger?” is this: a woman is hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency. That is my kind of plot. This is hysterical. Creating a story out of such a premise would seem like child’s play. This is an idea looking for Steve Martin or better yet, Jordan Peele. Oh the ideas that come to mind! What would the crafty coach come up with to smack some empathy into these people who have the crappiest job in the world? Too bad for us that this author chose to explore none of the fun, little of the danger, and all of the drab and dull. So much so that I DID feel anger. I think, however, that the question was meant for the characters. Oops. For the full review click here.
