In Lyle Kessler's ("Orphans") world premiere for The Barrow Group, there’s a vicious killer on the loose and the kindhearted Douglass finds himself the unwitting target of detectives who need a win at any cost. More…
Desperate to seek justice, Douglass sets out on a harrowing, fantastical quest to find the true perpetrator. In "Perp," the lines between good and evil blur in a divine search for redemption.
See it if Great story and dialogue. Amazing cast. Endearing w/o being sentimental or manipulative. Just one of those plays that you walk away moved by
Don't see it if I think just about anyone would find something to like. Moves along very quickly with lots of quirks and surprises.
See it if Very worth seeing. Some incredible performances that I'll remember for a long time. The audience was rapt throughout the play.
Don't see it if I'd say,"see it!" If you want a lot of action and/or music and a big Broadway show, this is not it although it is a very engrossing story.
See it if The Barrow Group stages great productions in a small theater. Strong acting and an engaging story of a Forest Gump type character.
Don't see it if Enjoyed this show. Can't think of a reason to not see it.
See it if you want to see some bravura acting in a gripping, moving play.
Don't see it if you need to see big. Only five actors and minimal sets (with fluid scene changes) bring an unusual story to life.
See it if you like a plot with characters who are true to life, acted well by this cast, on simple, yet effective set, touching on many issues.
Don't see it if if you seek easy answers watching five characters, here representing four very different types of people, act the way they do in our society
See it if Excellent acting and directing in this story of a serial killer on the loose, corrupt cops, and justice delayed. Dark humor. Great set.
Don't see it if 90 minutes with no intermission. A little slow at points. A few too many long pauses. Still in previews.
See it if You want to see a play written by Kessler. It’s been a very long time since we have heard from him
Don't see it if You are expecting this to be as good as his masterpiece “orphans”
See it if you want to see what happens when zealous cops find a slow-witted perp that fits their needs. More humor than drama but very well acted.
Don't see it if you want a more conventional story line or prefer musicals.
See it if You want to see a play about a man, a murder and how he gets entangled with the law and how he interacts with the detectives on the case.
Don't see it if You are not interested in a story about a crime and what happens when someone becomes entangled with the detectives that are on the case
See it if Great for a first preview. An innovative angle telling the story of false incarceration. Provokes thoughts of justice system. Nice casting.
Don't see it if Portraying the main antagonists as purely evil diminishes the credibility.
See it if you like characters that different from the norm - the protagonist is cornered into difficult situations and he makes the most of them
Don't see it if you are thrown out of plays that are a little bit surrealist. Some characters and situations are exaggerated for effect.
See it if you’re ok w/ the middle of the play being the clear highlight. Javier Molina turns this show around! The beginning & end are a bit deflating
Don't see it if Forrest Gump-like innocents try your patience. You're offended/triggered by unscrupulous police. Great performances but improbable plot.
See it if Want interesting premise w kind protag., quirky look at good v evil, reflections on truth, corruption, friendship, & "who shines a light."
Don't see it if Don't want cliches in story or character, highly improbable plot, lack of clarity betw "real" and imaginary, unlikeable cops. Still, worthy
See it if Good acting and production of a problem play. Good natured but dumb felllow Forest Gump fellow triumphs against all odds and likelihood.
Don't see it if Not believable, but I guess that's not the point. It seemed to be a parable or satire, and I would have liked that to be a little clearer.
See it if you enjoy parable-like stories. Whimsical characters and great acting. Sets are very nice.
Don't see it if you want your characters all to be believable. Could be a bit faster-paced.
See it if you like shows with a positive message even in darker scenarios; things neatly wrapped up; philosophical questions about innate goodness.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy a spiritual/Christian slant or moralizing.
See it if Absorbing story about the criminal justice system. Heart wrenching plotline with feel good moments.
Don't see it if You cannot suspend belief. The plot is clearly not real and several scenes are hard to take.
See it if You like well acted plays with interesting characters going on a rather whimsical journey.
Don't see it if You want a story that really gels together into something bigger than itself. An unclear message but interesting characters.
See it if you are interested in shows about miscarriage of justice, friendship,
Don't see it if you have no patience for a very slowly developed plot. You prefer musicals or amusing characters with light hearted issues.
