My overall impression

Director/Producer Alex Scott is in love with drama. And so is the rest of this excellent crew. I liked Scott’s 2012 Fringe offering, Nostalgium, and Jen Silverman’s taught Cleaner than Blood is even better. This is a focused, well directed evening of creepy tension, dark humor, and good acting from Maggie Blake, Kjai Block, and especially the rangy and dangerous-looking Austin Iredale who totally inhabits his edgy character. From the music that precedes the play to the set and lighting, all enhance this satisfying evening of theater. I have a friend who goes to the theater alone and sees lots of Equity Waiver and Fringe plays. He says, “I like it live, and I like it up close.” I told him he has got to see Cleaner than Blood.
