Ambitious, Meta drama, Quirky, Quiet, Atypical

See it if you want to ponder the meaning of relationships between the actors when acting and when not and what it means.

Don't see it if you are easily bored by a slow quietness of a production.

Theatre is Easy
March 30th, 2017

“Carter is surely a highlight of the production. With a pronounced presence as the aging actor, she switches effortlessly between her various roles with perfect clarity and distinction.
