BWW Reviews: DUNSINANE Concocts a Credible Sequel to Shakespeare's Scottish Play
by Shari Barrett - Mar 30, 2015

What happens when two of the world's most extraordinary theater companies, the England's Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre of Scotland, make the decision to work together on a sequel to Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth, one of his darkest and most powerful works? It's no less than a magical combination of talent that makes an improbable tale seem to be the essence of truth about sex, politics and power. Patricia Wolff, Interim Artistic Director of The Wallis adds, "David Greig's thrilling new drama brilliantly straddles the ancient and modern worlds, playing like a cross between "Game of Thrones" and "House of Cards."

BWW Reviews: TERMINUS - A Play Which Indulges the Author's Inner 16-Year-Old Self Compels at Convergence-Continuum
by Roy Berko - Nov 24, 2014

'The story is told in verse, densely packed with rhyme, which has to be spoken so that it sounds like natural language.' 'Much of the play concerns a battle between angels and demons.' 'There is little action in the play, just a series of monologues.' The descriptions are vivid, 'fingernails pierce an eyeball and drain it of fluid, a knife slices into a woman while she's having sex. A body implodes beneath the tires of a truck.' 'The play is filled with vivid, vulgar verse.' (more...)

Photo Flash: First Look at Madeleine Lambert and Jim O'Brien in The Gamm's BLACKBIRD
by BWW News Desk - May 5, 2014

The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre presents Blackbird by David Harrower and directed by Tony Estrella. It stars Madeleine Lambert and Jim O'Brien and runs from May 1 to June 1. Tickets are available here. Scottish playwright David Harrower's most acclaimed and most controversial play, Blackbird 'is theater at its most elemental,' says The New York Times. In a littered factory break room, 55-year-old Ray and 27-year-old Una engage in a confrontation so real and raw that you feel you should Look Away. But how can you? Fifteen years earlier, the two had a sexual affair...when she was 12. Ray has assumed a new identity and a new life following his imprisonment, while Una has not stopped searching for answers to her conflicting emotions. What emerges from the recriminations and explanations is a complex relationship that blurs the boundaries between love and lust, obsession and abuse. Uncompromising, shocking and surprisingly tender, Blackbirdwill leave you hanging on every word and every uncomfortable silence. For mature audiences only. (more...)
