Review by PETER FOLDY

June 17, 2019 original article

What I liked

The excellent and believable dialogue and the talented cast make this a must see. Excellent singing and guitar playing by Jesse Stevensen is also impressive.

What I didn't like

The lull in the play when the boys play video games, or when they both exit the room, leaving the stage empty for what seems way too long. This is quickly forgiven as the play charges forward with intense energy, leading up to its violent conclusion.

My overall impression

“Tommy’s Room” covers a timely subject as it delves into frat boy culture and the dire effects of toxic masculinity. With sharp, dialogue and powerful and convincing performances from Conor Sheehan as “Tommy” and Jesse Stevensen as “Pete,” Tommy’s Room is an edge of your seat thriller that shocks you as it breaks your heart.
