Funny, Serious, A bit indulgent and pretentious

See it if You are up for a creative and novel look at local culture versus colonizers.

Don't see it if You might be put off by something a bit too on the nose and too sure of it's own importance.

Edgy, Funny, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You like truly innovative small theater. A sharp-tongued satire of NGO efforts in Africa, dressed up in a clown suit and a cowboy hat

Don't see it if You need traditional narrative and storyline, hate experimental small theater or satire. Loud noises, smoke.

March 6th, 2017

“An intelligent, unruly and intermittently wonderful play…Mr. Wills has demonstrated a willingness to indulge scripted overgrowth that other directors might insist on trimming. The same is true in ‘Frontières,’ whose absurdity doesn’t always register the way it needs to, while its message can be too on the nose, its dialogue too garrulous. The ending would land harder if it didn’t stretch on so long. Yet there is much beauty in this abundance, and something deeply unsettling, too.”

“Howze's exciting piece is actually a savage burlesque, a clear-eyed bouffon treatment of war…Dustin Wills directs an incredible cast. Leslie, Winter and Fernandez are crackerjack commedia performers, and Ramos should win a prize for this…In the 'Frontières’ final 15 minutes...a long monologue slows the pace to a crawl, but more importantly, it also dims the show’s brilliance...The play is simply too good to conclude this way."
