The Other, Other Woman: An Emotional Horror Story Wrapped in a French Farce

    THE OTHER, OTHER WOMAN lives up to it's subtitle in every way: "An Emotional Horror Story Wrapped in a French Farce." The high paced antics of an entire town falling in and out of one another's beds is unscored by the unsettling choices the characters make in the name of duty and responsibility. Emily C. A. Snyder skillfully uses verse, rhyme, and rhetoric to give the script a richness which jumps off the page. This play is very playful, and it is exactly that element that heightens the devastating undertones of the script.

    Execellently done!
