February 2nd, 2016

"David Grieg's updated version of August Strindberg's play upholds the agitated passions and turmoil of the original, but for subtle changes to the expanse of text…Under Kevin Confoy's precise, tense direction, actors Craig Smith and Elise Stone portray neurosis with an undertaking that is both intellectually and viscerally effective…The three leads get the better of their audience with the persuasive delivery of credible notions and formidable grudges."

"Kevin Confoy took complete advantage of the brisk dialogue with his direction by giving the actors the space to move about and the motivation behind the written words…Although not an endearing play, 'Creditors' is captivating and full of well-crafted characters. Stone brings the middle-aged woman not wanting to be considered old, and longing to be desired, to full breadth. The young, tortured artist and husband, who really does love his wife, is fully present in Tyson."

"The cast of 'Creditors' is full of strong actors; they handle the language well and understand the emotional stakes required to move the play forward to its ultimate conclusion. The thing they lack is the innate sexuality implied by the script, and that missing chemistry makes it difficult to believe in the relationships onstage...Even without a particularly charged atmosphere, this psychological drama about guilt, sex, and revenge is hard to stomach, in the best possible way."
