  • JUGGLING WITH MR. FIELDS
    30 Apr. 2020
    I love the performers from this period - the stars of the Follies - theatre on the road. W.C. Fields was one of the best and brightest of these stars and O'Grady serves up this star and the real man beneath with care. She knows her character well and brings to life one of the truthful and most interesting chapters of Fields' life. A wonderful writer, we are in great hands while learning about the inimitable W.C. - I enjoyed it so much!
  • Message From Leonardo. Being one in a series of "How it Really Happened"
    29 Apr. 2020
    The first circle of hell for a writer is caught between the teeth in this great monologue by David Patton. It will give an actor a wide berth for this study of creation and jealousy. Well done.
  • Tae a Virus
    29 Apr. 2020
    Hearing/Reading it with the brogue and in this parody, it makes the virus seem more real planting us right in the present with a classical bent. We have joined the history of the world's mysteries! An unexpected and welcome addition to our quarantine literature!
  • A young man's coming of age through Rock 'n Roll
    29 Apr. 2020
    It could be you or me walking down this road being hit by musical lightening. Patton captures it so fast and sharp. I must say, I want more! Which is a great way for a piece to leave you.
  • Last Dance
    27 Apr. 2020
    What a surprising, sweet and slightly mysterious play - until the truth of the characters dawn on you! I don't want to give anything away -- but it is as if you can see these people, no longer with us, one more time, too. I'm thankful the play was written.
  • TITANIC TOO (from the STILL FEISTY COLLECTION)
    27 Apr. 2020
    Lermond's writing is to the bone as she tells the story of family and neighbors n a small Maine town. Everyone needs to take risks if they're going to grow their lives and this short play shows the way.
  • BEACH WEDDING (from the STILL FEISTY Collection)
    27 Apr. 2020
    I love seeing the wedding from the eyes of the bride's parents. It's their life together we see in this endearing comedy. Something for everybody in this duologue but married couple will really appreciate BEACH WEDDING.
  • TWISTED DICKENS (from the TAPAS COLLECTION)
    27 Apr. 2020
    Your expectations for fun are fulfilled in this twisted tale. The audience will surely enjoy the colorful jokes in Lermond's treatment of the classic!
  • Bricked In
    26 Apr. 2020
    Dickson makes this father and son come alive - It's almost more of a photograph - you can see each each scar and where it came from and how each landed on his son. A wonderful piece of writing.
  • The Darkside of the Mom
    26 Apr. 2020
    A test that every parent has tried or wishes he/she had. The heartbreaking rejection of a child - it's normal and so is the jealousy Dickson captures perfectly.
