Review by ZACH BROWN

June 21, 2017

What I liked

Very haunting and HUMANIZING story filled with desert magic and illusion.

What I didn't like

The connection between the two actors in the 2nd scene. Needed more variety and relationship. Really wanted to care more about these people but it felt a little stiff in the directing. The language was doing a lot of the work for this portion.

My overall impression

Really beautiful writing. If sam shepard were a woman. Great actors. The first scene was more powerful than the 2nd. Actors really handling the language with grace and strength and beauty. Loved the simple and transformative set and lights. I felt transported. Looking forward to more work from this writer.

LA’s premier bouffon troupe: a motley crew of miscreants have crawled out of the gutter to make you question reality. Our feats of physical and existential comedy defy explanation and provoke unfettered, eery glee. Come see what's behind the curtain.

See Mary Birdsong (Reno 911) as Melania!
