Ambitious, Well done

See it if You enjoy going off the beaten path for the pleasure of a good show. Well-acted and well-directed, I found it to be well worth the time.

Don't see it if You only like Broadway or feel that Queens is too far to go for a show, or if you don't enjoy small shoestring productions.

Absorbing, Refreshing, Thought-provoking

See it if you like Ibsen; you enjoy a bit more modern take on this classic. great job by lead actress.

Don't see it if you don't like a streamline version of classic plays. You need more than a one room set.

"The short 80 minute run time is made possible by McReady’s adaptation of the text, but also by her choice to overlap some dialogue. Though this does create a sense of unrest and tension at first, the repetition of this device is a little odd...Schirard shines most in her gradual shift to Hedda’s darker side, where she finds the control and power that make her life endurable. Thanks to Schirard’s performance, I left the theater thinking about the courage needed to live life by your own rules."
