Which Way to the Beach

    Philip Middelton Williams messes with your expectations perfectly in this laugh-out-loud funny play about mistaken identity. George and Marjorie are endearing as the fish-out-of-water Midwestern couple in South Beach, and the surprising reveal at the play's climax is a fantastic twist. This would be a hoot to stage.

    This is a fun comedy of mounting errors and mistaken identities, peppered with sly bon mots and withering quips that barely hide the deeper issue bubbling underneath its witty surface: unconditional love and acceptance from the parental units. One hopes Marjorie, at least, will find her way to the beach.

    The characters drew me in immediatley and I was pulled in by their honesty and vulnerability as they discussed true acceptance and the poster of acceptance. I was not expecting the twists but I am oh so happy with how the ending tied up. The setting also felt like a character in itself, which I really enjoyed. So fun!
