BWW Review: THE QUARRY is Surreal, Charming and Deeply Touching
by Frank Benge - Oct 5, 2015

THE QUARRY, a new play by Greg Pierce, now in the work's second staging at Hyde Park Theatre, uses an unusual and surrealistic narrative style for what is basically a Detective Story to an effectively provocative effect. A series of puzzling events in the marble quarry in an unnamed town in Vermont cause Jean (Katherine Catmull), an antisocial widow, to start her own investigation. As the play begins, Jean talks about how she enjoys staring into the quarry beside her house, how the sound of the machines soothes her, and how much she misses her husband, Sammy (Ken Webster). Jean has packed up her house because she was planning to 'off herself.' Her reason for this is much more pragmatic than one would expect. Her reason to end her life is because she believes that every life has a "main story" and hers is complete. However, she's decided to stick around because of the mystery in the quarry...the discovery of three marble steps leading to nowhere. Jean's opening monologue only hints at what is to come. We learn the story in fragments as the other characters speak. (more...)

BWW Review: The New Jewish Theatre's Thought-Provoking UNDERNEATH THE LINTEL
by Chris Gibson - Feb 3, 2016

Over the years I've learned a tremendous amount about the Jewish religion and its traditions through the plays and people I've come in contact with at The New Jewish Theatre. But, I have to admit that I never knew the story of the 'wandering Jew', although I'd grown up with parents who loved flora and fauna, and often had the plant growing outside that was nicknamed for the tale. I brought my son along with me to see the show because I want him to be well rounded and know as much as he can about the belief systems of all cultures. Glen Berger's wonderful play, UNDERNEATH THE LINTEL, is a sort of Detective Story that is truly, as artistic director Kathleen Sitzer described it; a testament to faith. It achieved precisely what I had hoped it would do as well by provoking an interesting discussion between my son and I as we talked on the way home. This is a very well done production that provides must-see entertainment, while also giving its audience plenty to ponder. (more...)

FEAST OF THE RAVEN is Released
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2016

Quillstone Press announces the release of Feast of the Raven, the debut novel from Catherine Spader of Littleton, CO. The critically acclaimed historical fantasy is set in Dark Ages Germany where a wolf demon is prowling the primeval forests. He is Wulfhedinn-scourge of the Christian Franks. He is also Gerwulf, the man, a wretched outcast and bastard of a Christian woman and pagan father. Torn between ancient magic and the new Christian order, Gerwulf seeks to redeem his mortal soul by serving the legendary Charlemagne in a savage Holy War against the pagan Saxons. Trade reviews for Feast of the Raven 'Superbly written and impeccably edited...Spader is unquestionably a talented writer: Her writing style is fluid and at times lyrical, her description of northern Germany meticulous and fully immersive, and her knowledge of folklore extensive. But it's her characters that make this novel so readable. Interesting and emotionally compelling, they are certain to resonate with readers.' - Blue Ink Review '(Feast of the Raven)...strikes an appealing balance between historical fiction, sword and sorcery, and a noirish Detective Story, with quick pacing and just enough world building to lend weight to the plot. Sequels are planned, and they are welcome: the reader should be eager to see what other secrets Spader's vast medieval forests might yield. A compelling start to a historical fantasy series about a troubled warrior seeking redemption.' - Kirkus Reviews About the author Catherine (Meier) Spader is a first-generation American raised on the history and lore of medieval Germany. At age 11, she saw the skull reliquary of Charlemagne and became enthralled with the era. Catherine is a registered nurse (RN) who specialized in emergency and trauma care for twenty years. She is also a medical writer and editor and has published over 1000 articles. Catherine feeds her inner Wulfhedinn by playing ice hockey and prowling the wild forests and historic sites of Europe and the American West. Feast of the Raven is available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and IndieBound. Catherine's electronic media kit is available through www.quillstonepress.com.

LINCOLN'S BODYGUARD Now Available in Trade Paper
by BWW News Desk - Apr 20, 2016

The Story: In Lincoln's Bodyguard, an alternative version of American history, President Lincoln is saved from assassination. Though he prophesied his own death-the only way he believed the South would truly surrender-Lincoln never accounted for the heroics of his bodyguard, Joseph Foster. A biracial mix of white and Miami Indian, Joseph makes an enemy of the South by killing John Wilkes Booth and preventing the death of the president. His wife is murdered and his daughter kidnapped, sending Joseph on a revenge-fueled rampage to recover his daughter. When his search fails, he disappears as the nation falls into a simmering insurgency instead of an end to the War. Years later, Joseph is still running from his past when he receives a letter from Lincoln pleading for help. The President has a secret mission. Pursued from the outset, Joseph turns to the only person who might help, the woman he abandoned years earlier. If he can win Molly over, he might just fulfill the President's urgent request, find his daughter, and maybe even hasten the end of the War. (more...)
