Clever takes on the theme of Interventions - those successful, those failed, and those aborted. A nod to Ashley McGee for serving double duty and lending his comic spark to the first two pieces. And kudos to Andrew Boyle for his one-man portrayal in the provocative third piece, which begs the question: should one feel guilty for not intervening, with dire consequences, or would intervention have been interfering with fate, resulting in different, equally dire consequences? Never maudlin, Boyle takes us on an intimate journey with simplicity and honesty. ... full review

"The End of the Line" is a two character play set in a British train, wherein McGee shares his coach with the versatile Ann Ryerson in an amusing, sometimes suspenseful romp about suicide, murder and who knows what?

Loved all three plays. Very different from each other which made for an entertaining evening...went from funny to thoughtful to sad. Banana Intervention had very witty dialogue with some funny twists and turns. Strangers on a Train had some surprises and the actors were great. Clouds Rest was a heartfelt one man show. Fierce Backbone has it going on! Kudos to all writers and actors! ... full review
