For Sugith Varughese's theatrical debut, Entitlement feels raw and unprofessional. Polished though the production may be, the script sorely stands out as the weakest element. The action of the play involves a screenwriter, Anish, (Sam Khallleh) hired to teach at a local college who fails Dylan's (Christo Graham) final script for class and finds his methods under appeal. The action begins slowly, with conflict slowly seeping into the play and usually in a superficial way. The first 20 minutes could probably be excised altogether and many of the solo scenes simply do not push the action forward.
