March 23rd, 2016

"Director Robert Greer’s mission to substitute class struggles for American racial conflict is admirable but the production fumbles in similar ways to the first part, requiring too much suspension of disbelief to successfully translate Strindberg’s work...There is an attempt in the production to balance it out with a fever dream quality, but the clunky scene changes and kooky projections do more to tear the audience away from the show rather than immerse them in Greer’s vision."

"Strindberg’s text can be insufferably convoluted, carelessly implausible, and often overbearing in its lessons about personal redemption. Greer tries to keep the audience awake with quick, efficient pacing, and sharp moments of humor...But the play inherently lacks drama—the dramatic conflict that arrests our attention and makes us invest ourselves in the outcome is spread too thin during two hours."
