ERNEST KEARNEY certified reviewer June 06, 2015
Now I liked “The Halfwits Last Hurray”, and “The Poe Show” was certainly good for some highbrow\lowbrow snickers, but congrats to director Amanda Weier and especially Rebecca Lincoln for serving me up my first jaw dropper of this Fringe Fest (I’m confident there’ll be many more) A strange, disturbing, and excellently mounted tale of a woman’s descent into madness. Lincoln does a superb job Mark Wilson deserves praise for for his beautifully woven sound web. ... full review

ANDREW AMANI certified reviewer June 15, 2015
In the wake of the teen-age pool party incident in Texas, nothing could be more relevant than Anna, In The Darkness. Rebecca Lincoln’s stellar performance helped lend an emphatic, up close and personal ear into the mind of a tortured soul. On one side, it’s absolutely heinous to see how such awful acts of humanity are so blindly justified by misplaced ideals of status quo or distorted religious convictions. On the other side, it was a pure delight to see, feel and taste the torment through the mind of someone who is losing theirs through the constant barrage of haunting threats by the people in her community. Or could it be just voices in her head? You’ll have to come see the show and make up your mind. The small intimate, exposed b... full review

RICHARD GRAVES certified reviewer June 15, 2015
Rebecca Lincoln is great as a tormented soul in this one-woman, psychological thriller. The audience doesn't see the horrifying people who are bent on destroying her, or entirely understand the reasons for their malice and hatred, but we certainly hear them - or at least what she THINKS she hears. Is her paranoia justified? You'll decide. The set, lighting, and especially the threatening voices and sound effects permeating the entire performance, are all effectively chilling. Atmospheric, moody, spooky, and disturbing - but in an entertainingly creepy way! If this sounds like your thing, check out this show! You won't be disappointed!... full review

To me, this show was well made. I loved Rebecca Lincoln's performance, I believed every word. The sound and the lighting added to the heartbreaking realness of injustice, and how dark humans can be, especially if they believe they have righteousness on their side. Go see it. ... full review

Wow. Such a darkly compelling performance by Rebecca Lincoln in this stark, spooky piece. The titular Anna, a sad and haunted woman, is played to perfection by Ms. Lincoln. Her performance is well paired with the absolutely stunning sound design by Mark McClain Wilson. In fact, the soundscape is so dense and responsive, it's arguably the other "character" in this solo show. A tightly crafted production, directed by the skilled Amanda Weier. Well done.... full review

I walked in to a background of voices. The audience chimed in to create the soundscape. No fool I, I spotted Anna in the darkness cowering. What follows is a genius story, the rise of madness in a woman only surpassed by the madness of the pious. Great on all fronts. ... full review
