Confusing, Disappointing, Great acting, Quirky, Cliched

See it if you have love for the city and want to see some tidbits of good acting.

Don't see it if you find unnecessarily loud music interfering with dialogue result in you missing a good portion of the play.

Excruciating, Indulgent, Workshop-y, Insipid, Disappointing

See it if You know someone involved with the production. You want to support community theatre.

Don't see it if You value solid theatrical values: it's a miss in all aspects-writing, acting, directing & production. Only 45 minutes,tho felt waay longer! Read more

August 29th, 2017

“The great thing about writer/director Marcina Zaccaria’s reportage is its humor, a kind of affronted snarky humor that lies at the center of dislocation…These actors move in and out, flowing like a modern dance piece and fill out their moments with meaning and verve. The movement is clear with a great sense of life in constant motion and change. The Middle Aged Woman played by Frances McGarry anchors the piece with authority and her passionate complaints also provide humor.”

"An elegant trio of actresses introduced rhythm, music, and dance...With so many themes and interesting elements within 40 minutes of the production, I’m curious if Zaccaria’s intent is to keep the show as a short flow of ideas or to expand and organize the hustle and bustle rhythms and refreshing earthy elements into a full-length play. Either way, Zaccaria’s 'Village, My Home' will make you consider to slow down and rethink what home really is."
