BENJAMIN NICHOLSON certified reviewer June 10, 2019
Bigly (or big-league) intelligent premise, fantastic acting, and topical relevance gives the "treason" we may see in our own lives a familial plausibility.... full review
LUCY GILLESPIE certified reviewer June 15, 2019
A deeply disturbing show, very well crafted and performed. ... full review
CHRISTI PEDIGO certified reviewer June 19, 2019
WOW! Treason has one of the strongest casts I've seen at Fringe this year. Every character is real, honest, and completely connected. The well written script helps them achieve this feat with honest family moments, tense dramatic moments, and a well thought out arc. An all around great show.... full review

Treason encapsulates the complicated family dynamics under the threat of violence; a striking analogy to what is going on in Trump’s America. ... full review
MARTIN RODRIGUEZ certified reviewer June 15, 2019
It is a strange feeling when a fictional dark comedy story feels- so real. Treason made you think. The moments of comedy made you laugh but also made you pause and go "Oh." At times, I try to not watch too many political plays because, especially in the time we are in right now, they all start to sound the same. Treason strayed far from the path in the best way possible. This has been one of the best political plays I have seen. The angle they took to highlight our world today and the absurdity of some of it while creating an enjoyable experience that will make you laugh but also makes you think about what we are going through- opening a dialogue about what we can do to improve. ... full review

This play was a masterclass in increasing tension and does a wonderful job bringing macro issues down to a micro level. It's a whirlwind of a ride that you should not miss this Fringe!... full review

Beautifully structured pot boiler political satire family drama. You know: one of those. The playwright Eric DePriester asks a lot of his actors and they all deliver. It's tense, funny, and bitter. All things I love.... full review
PIERCE MINOR certified reviewer June 14, 2019
This was a great show. I laughed a lot, and was totally creeped out by the son character.... full review
VANESSA BOSS certified reviewer June 11, 2019
Very thought provoking, intensely uncomfortable, inventive concept. I could see this show being developed into a film as well. I also loved the set design!... full review

Tell Me About Your Daddy

A modern Freud makes an irreverent analysis of ’The Gay’ (deconstructing four archetypes, tribalism, & internalized homophobia) while prescribing the need to label others as a way of self-identity–until his experiment spins wildly out of control!
