BWW Reviews: STC's BLOOD RELATIONS Is Overly Complicated
by Jay Irwin - Sep 14, 2014

So authors and producers keep coming back to it especially since she got away with it, assuming she really did it at all. No one really knows for sure. And while the tale still lends some fascination, the current retelling in Sound Theatre Company's production of "Blood Relations" manages to get unnecessarily complicated while not really conveying much that's interesting or enlightening about the story.
