A creative, well imagined exploration of the arbitrariness of life and death. "Are our deities really omnipotent, or do they just tell us they are?" it asks, and what a fun question. Buoyed by Tiago Santos's endearing and grounded performance as Finn, the show takes us on a wacky, unpredictable journey in search of a truth that both is and is not at the heart of things.... full review

AMEN is incredible! The story is so original, creative, and really makes you question everything you know about the "gods". I was completely invested and so curious what would happen next through-out the whole duration of this show. The talented ensamble did a wonderful job at finding the heart in this incredibly creative story. 10/10... full review

A funny, smart, and well-executed exploration of eternal themes. The play isn't afraid to pose deep questions, yet never feels heavy-handed or contrived. The technical elements were beautifully done. The performers are light on their feet. Go see this show!... full review

I myself have thought of marching up to God to give Them a piece of my mind, so it's no surprise that I greatly enjoyed this short play. For an hour of your time, ponder the nature of the universe and its implications through the eyes of two wounded souls traveling different paths of regret & longing.... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 22, 2024
An absurdist fantasy comedy that touches a myriad of human conditions. Interesting, engaging, and Fast pace that proved smart and Insightful. A unique portrayal of a non-binary God is a welcome change from the typical portrayal. Foxglove played by Rosemary Idisi. Commanded her scenes she is beautiful, intelligent, and magnetic. Finn, played by Thiago Santos , seven grappled with an ageless quality that we as humans face throughout our lives. The shadowplay was brilliant and enhanced the scenes. The costumes help portray the character and/or their state of being. Blocking with seamless and clearly effectively directed. Overall, a great value for the money... full review

CONSTANCE JAQUAY STRICKLAND certified reviewer June 18, 2024
Marisa Ray’s Amen is a wonderful one-act play. It is a play that is fearless in asking big questions and doesn’t feel the need to answer them for the audience. It requires us to ponder, to sit with our beliefs… and what we think we know and how we know it. The ensemble is lovely, and each actor onstage is a fully realized character. I loved the shadow work embodied by the actors and the use of talking to God. And God, themselves, talking throughout the play was clever and familiar, for we all have had our own experiences with God.... full review
