"Double Bind" is a gem among Fringe offerings. Blake Abramovitz's script is fascinating, offering an enticing storyline, well defined characters, and dramatic tension worthy of Edward Albee. Tightly directed and beautifully acted. Don't miss it! ... full review

You have to go see Double Bind!!!! Great play. Wonderful writing and very talented actors! I've watched this play grow from the beginning. I NEVER get bored. It makes me cry and laugh EVERY time. I relate so deeply with each character and can never pick which one I am routing for. The writing is truly art. I'm so impressed with how well this ever familiar story is told. Ceri, Blake and Clark are amazing. If you like theater don't miss this brilliant work! ... full review

I am so pleased to be providing the first review for folks considering seeing Double Bind. Should you get a ticket? Yes!!!! GO GO GO. There at least 3 reasons. 1) the writing is inspired. Blake Abramovitz is a literary alchemist who really unrolls a red carpet of poetry, to create a world layered on top of our own - a world of Kerouacian fantasy of a bohemian liberation which, in this discourse between old friends is ultimately exposed to be either a lie or the truth. The conversation seems to exist within two halves of the same mind, like in True West. Abramovitz doesn't leap to his morals heavy-handidly, the characters toil their way honestly and with sincere care for each other. 2) the cast is spot on. The dialogue was poet... full review

Double Bind is a must see at the Fringe this year! Brilliantly written by Blake Abramovitz, this three person ensemble piece takes you on a rollercoaster ride for a short 80 minutes. Great direction by Aaron Lyons and acting by Clark Freeman, Ceri Bethan and Blake Abramovitz make this a piece you want to make sure to add to your list for this years Fringe.... full review

I went to see Double Bind this past Monday and must first say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Rather than rely on outlandish sets or dizzying effects this plays strengths rest squarely on the shoulders of its characters. Double Bind opens with a strong first act that anchors the precarious crossroad each character seems to find themselves at. Whether their cognitive dissonance registers on their mind conciously or not, it soon becomes apparent to the audience. What follows is a familiar push and pull that nearly all of us can relate to, and is highlighted by the sharp writing of Mr. Shields. I highly recommend making time to see this play, you will not regret it!... full review

"Double Bind" is an amazing piece of work and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Tightly plotted and brilliantly performed, the story feels like it covers a tremendous amount of material and plumbs remarkable emotional depths for such a short (75-80 minute) production. All three actors delivered superbly characterized, believable, nuanced and deeply human performances that had the audience I was in running the gamut from laughter to compassion to edge-of-your-seat suspense and back again. You will love this play. ... full review

Boy did this play leave me cold. A man's domestic life is interrupted by a shady friend from his past. The performances were fine, I guess, but I was not interested in any of it. The fact that this show appears to be well-received brings me back to those Magic Eye books, where I could never see the picture. I would give this a solid "Miss." http://fringeblog.webs.com/... full review
