“Double Bind” is a lyrical treat. Beautifully scripted, playwright Blake Shields Abramovitz exposes the plight of the artist’s heart: to wander where the music and poems and wind may lead, or to settle down with a respectable job, a family, and some shubunkin goldfish.
Sam (Clark Freeman) despaired between these two worlds, symbolized by his enchanting girlfriend Laura (Ceri Bethan) and his restless friend Frank, played expertly by Abramovitz. Bethan was as captivating as Freeman was passionate—both are talents with great promise.
As an artist I immediately connected to Sam’s plight, and found myself, in the end, happily choosing to let Sam decide for us both.
