Funny, Intelligent, Edgy, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy Fellini's wonderful direction, absurdist comedy, empathetic writing.

Don't see it if a show which needs some improvements and lacks sympathy for its characters (but is filled with empathy). Read more

"An ambitious historical dramatization, The Wake of Dorcas Kelly is unsatisfying on various levels."

"A spirited production of a darkly humorous story. If it doesn't always hit the mark, it's full of enough wicked humor and laugh-out-loud moments to be thoroughly fun...While there are a number of strong performances in the show, Peter Oliver is easily the most hilarious as the young man Dorcas Kelly failed to murder."
