Wednesday Repertory Company explores the themes of life, death, and family in this world premiere, a coming-of-age tale involving boys, blood, and a buffalo.
See it if Playwright Eddie Vernovsky definitely has a way with words. The dialogue in this piece is rapid fire and engaging, and most of the actors
Don't see it if give it good life. Vernovsky still needs some help with the bigger structural elements of the show. The pacing felt off, and each scene was
See it if you want to support new works - here there is the grasp of a good story, written with true-to-life current speak, that needs development.
