'Wild Orchids' is a film noir-eque, feminist, fictional take on 1940’s Hollywood, where a secretary has a chance encounter with William Faulkner that changes both their lives…or maybe not. In 'Rosary Hill,' two gentle nuns tend to their garden, only they may not be all that they seem.
See it if you want to see and support new works that have potential. Acting was very good and minimal staging was used well.
Don't see it if you want a polished production - I was left wanting to have more of Rosary Hill and to understand the characters better in Wild Orchids.
See it if you want to feel like you saw half a show. Each piece seemed to want a second act but didn't get it. Solid acting though.
Don't see it if you want a fully satisfying evening. When the lights came up, I felt shorted of something...
See it if The noir bit was reasonably well done; lots of smoking and a mildly feminist tone. Not amazing, but a couple decent scenes.
Don't see it if The nun part was dull and pointless. It's only ~30 min, so there's a bang for your buck issue that wouldn't bother me if it was better.
See it if Honestly I would not recommend this show at all. A real let down. I was not even aware the first play had ended. Entire show was 20 minutes
Don't see it if You value your time.
See it if You want to see a play that is made up of two very short one acts
Don't see it if You are expecting anything polished and ready to be viewed by an audience. Both plays are incomplete
