My partner and I added this play to our hit list after meeting the playwright at Fringe Central and I am so glad we did. We took a group of four and everybody agreed that the acting, writingn, directing, and fight scenes were amazing. Rise is the whole package…plus controversy enough to last through several after-dinner drinks. Our group was split down the middle on what the ending should have been, what we would have liked to see these characters do next, what really happened after the final curtain. Don’t miss Rise. You won’t regret it and you won’t forget it. Congratulations to everybody on a great show.
