TOM P certified reviewer June 11, 2015
Two excellent plays. We really enjoyed "Or Dare - Wherein Lies the Truth?" The acting was brilliant and the script was thought-provoking, honest, and engaging. In the first set, two jurors holed up in a hotel and cut off from the world outside engage in a late night debate and struggle to understand each other, themselves, and the fate of the man on trial. In the second, two strangers meet at a bus stop and begin a suspenseful, challenging game of truth or dare. Highly recommend! ... full review

I loved the 1st act. I wanted to know more about who the ladies were and how their lives turned our after the trial. Not so crazy about the 2nd act. No reflection on the actors,they were amazing. I couldn't really get attached to the characters.... full review
AMY LAMON certified reviewer June 14, 2015
Both one acts were wonderful. Well written and performed perfectly. Each act had situations that could occur in anyone's daily life. I felt more of a connection to the first act as it seemed to be more of a situation I might encounter. However, both were great!!!... full review

Two terrific examples of simple yet complex character interactions. The acting brought the concepts of unlikely relationships to light through truthful life challenges. I recommend these plays, and again the sories and the acting are superior. Congratulations to Jennifer Ashe and David Robinson, excellent production.... full review

This was such a smart idea to have a double decker. The first scenario, two stuck women. And it could have been stuck, but because Jenny and Kate understand comedy, every little one liner, every small motion was funny. I found myself nodding at their triumph. Andrea's play, was so interesting, because I really had no idea what was going to happen next. That's my favorite thing about theatre. Ashe is formidable to have put this together. ... full review

Such an AWESOME Surprise!! I went in having NO IDEA what to expect -- but Ashe & her fellow actresses had me engaged from the start AND kept me for the entire 2 part Journey! Incredibly smart & well written, with some great twists & turns -- ADD to that some solid acting -- this is a MUST SEE in my book!... full review

Both plays are interesting, unpredictable, entertaining and thought-provoking. David Robinson gives these wonderful actors plenty of breathing space to tell their stories. ... full review
MIKE RAD certified reviewer June 22, 2015
2 simple one acts brilliantly directed by David Robinson. He seems to put all his actors in the best possible situation to let them flourish. The staging is simple and perfect. All the acting is solid. Kate Whitney gives a an amazing truthful performance. I felt like as soon as she spoke, I knew everything about her character. I loved it. In a town with so many choices. This show is worth your time. ... full review

The two pieces were thought provoking and well acted. The actors were guided by insightful direction. A great afternoon of theater.... full review
JIM HANNA certified reviewer June 23, 2015
Go ahead and try to find more subtle, understated yet powerful acting anywhere at Fringe this year. I'll wait. A deceptively simple, beautiful night of theater. Jenny Ashe especially impresses as she pulls double duty in two different but well crafted one-acts.... full review
