JOSH HILLINGER certified reviewer June 11, 2013
Intense and talented performances. Definitely worth it for the end. I left invigorated. Heavy subject matters, but overall very realistic presentations of traumatized young women trying to connect.... full review

MIKEY CARLSON certified reviewer June 19, 2013
The performances of these two brave souls are breathtaking. The story will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time and you will leave this show dazed, confused, and thinking. Highly recommend this to anyone who appreciates cerebral story lines and thrilling performances. BRAVO! ... full review

JENNIE SHEFFIELD certified reviewer June 24, 2013 Stranded written and also acted by Fiona Lakeland is a dramatic piece about sexual abuse and the effects it has on two sisters played by Fiona Lakeland and Kimberly Connelly.

Stranded is a collaboration of the writer, director Adrian LaTourelle and Kimberly Connelly. They were inspired by the writings and journals of Sylvia Plath and Marilyn Monroe.
