Stage Buddy

“Griffin’s ‘Trial’ shows how trapped a young person can feel when her father is repeatedly harming her and the grown-ups that all children are urged to tell do nothing to help her. The titular trial revolves around Arcadia wavering between blame, justice, and mercy...The play is skillfully staged in a theatre-in-the-round style...Cooper's lighting takes Arcadia from the present to the past without missing a beat.” Full Review

Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Masterful, Great staging

See it if Bravura Ashley Griffin leads an incredible cast bringing this brutal play that hits you in places you haven't felt in a long time.

Don't see it if You can not deal with the child abuse depiction, as it is a central theme though not the only one.

Masterful, Must see, Riveting, Great writing, Great staging

See it if If this show were on Broadway it would win the Pulitzer. No exaggeration. I've never seen forgiveness dealt with so profoundly. Go.

Don't see it if You just want a frothy night out. This is a show that makes you deal with uncomfortable issues. Not for the faint hearted.

Also Ryan Clardy and Ashley Griffin, OMG. Electric! The whole cast is fanta... Read more Read less

Edgy, Great acting, Intelligent, Intense, Thought-provoking

Funny, Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You like thought-provoking work with a great twist and like the premise of "The Great Divorce" or the show "The Good Place"

Don't see it if You don't like heavy topics like the after-life (this show has only a hint of religion) or childhood abuse

Also Amazing acting, directing, writing and stage-lighting! Very well-thoug... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Slow, Entertaining

See it if You are looking for TV dialogue/performances onstage. Great premise, great acting. Lori Petty does really smart work in a small space.

Don't see it if You are ultra-religious or afraid to have your opinions challenged. The second act is very long and tries to do many things at once.
