Complex and dreamlike, this was a nice bit of post-modernism. A good mix of humor and thought-provocation.... full review

The conceit of the play is so fiendishly clever that there isn't anywhere the narrative can take you that isn't justified. The great news is that the story is reigned in and tempered by the writers in such a way that you're never completely lost, yet the incredibly talented cast has all the room in the world to soar. I did not know the plays of record, but the exposition is carefully meted out so that it doesn't affect one's ability in the least to enjoy the intricacies of the character's predicaments. Even though the space is spare, there is full life on the stage and the actors bring an amazing energy and craft to the material. Just a wonderful piece of imaginative theater! ... full review

When the show ended, it was as though I awoke from a dream myself. A seamless collaboration of the work of actually several playwrights, all based on the work of one, The Miss Julie Dream Project is masterfully assembled into an undulating, interwoven, yet cohesive work of dreamlike fantasy, paranoia, struggle, fate, and sex.

There are some shows where you show up not knowing what to expect, you sit down, strap in and get ready to go on a ride. That's exactly what happened here. I sincerely enjoyed this show. The clever concept, of a suddenly self-aware literary character desperately trying to escape their pre-written destiny, experienced in a series of dreams they fall through is both interesting and creative. I'm fascinated not only by this piece, but by the process it was developed. I hope to see more explorations from Fell Swoop in the near future. ... full review

The first few scenes dramatized what runs through my head, should I ever consider directing Miss Julie. I unfortunately lost The Dream Play thread, having not read it in twenty years, and that made it hard to follow the last half. All the performances were pretty stellar and often surprising. I'm interested to see more from Fell Swoop that isn't so specifically centered around intimate knowledge of two texts.... full review
