Kate Gill's drama concerns two young men whose lives were irrevocably altered by the unsafe surroundings of their summer job at a nuclear power plant. More…
Billy and Jack thought they had found the ideal summer job. Decent hours, good money. It was a no-brainer to clean up the Soundview Nuclear Power Plant. Years later, the effects of that summer are shortening their lives. Both young men - each deathly ill - must deal with the outcome, each in his own way.
“I always love well-written, thought-provoking plays which deal with issues that many people deal with on a regular basis...For me, ‘Soundview’ was very much an example of such a play...What makes the story even better is the fact that it is brought to life by a phenomenal cast...A gripping play that keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end, and I hope this isn’t the last we’ll be hearing of this play.” Full Review
See it if You like to see small shows, a strong ensemble cast, social themes and a vein of humor.
Don't see it if You're looking for deep analysis of the nuclear industry or you don't like 90 minute plays.
See it if The reason for the poor character development is due to a horrible book with too many under written scenes & the main conflict feels untrue.
Don't see it if The female cast members leave their male counterparts in dust. Even with this material, the women in the cast bring their characters alive.
