"'6 Actors in Search of a Character' attempts to be a comedy set out to prove the notion that there is no reality in theatre. But, instead, tells a random, un-relatable plot that twists and turns and leaves the audience more confused than ready to question the true nature of a play...'6 Actors in Search of a Character' would have more of an impact if the script had underlying consistency. Due to an overuse of edgy material, the play loses focus."

'"6 Actors in Search of a Character is a veritable Acting 101 class that goes through all the familiar tropes of theatrical tradition...Writer-Director Ed Eriksson is clearly working with some big ideas and does his best to keep the action on stage coherent enough for the audience to follow. I found myself wishing that his youthful company would have taken things a bit more seriously in order to really sell the comedy."
