The teens of Greenport, CT face a chaotic spring semester as they grapple with loyalty, lust, narcissism, and nihilism before hitting the most important night of their lives: prom. FMK mashes up the high drama of Jacobean theater and classic high school tropes into a fast-paced and highly stylized epic where secrets are spilled, backs are stabbed, and the survivors are left to count the dead and wonder how and why they got out alive.
FMK features violence and strong language.
Recommended for ages 13 and up.
