Six women of vastly different upbringings and backgrounds sign-up for a class in “Mediumship and Divination.” Each in search of something that’s missing. Will they find it among the spirits? "Divination" examines that inevitable point in a woman’s life – whatever age it may come – that past isn’t always prologue and the fortune shouldn’t always be foretold.
"Where this show really shined was in its ensemble. For the most part, you felt that each woman came in to the class with her own specific problems, and the play is at its best when these problems intersect with the problems of the others in the class and the women are forced to work together. However, the show did suffer from a rather slow pacing at times...I hope as the play continues to evolve that it will not lose sight of these wonderfully fascinating ideas." Full Review
“There’s meat and imagination here. It just needs some work. The production itself is hit or miss. It looks like very spare, community theater. Yating Sun, as Tara, overacts. The others all ebb and flow. Meredith Rust and Badriyah Kennedy are most consistent and developed. Ken Coughlin’s direction is yeoman-like. A ceremony conducted off stage and represented by blurry video seems gimmicky and distancing.” Full Review
