THE CLINIC To Be Presented Across The United States In Readings To Raise Funds For Re Photo THE CLINIC To Be Presented Across The United States In Readings To Raise Funds For Reproductive Rights
by BWW News Desk - May 17, 2019

THE CLINIC, a Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference Semi-Finalist written by Will Brumley, will be staged in cities across the United States as part of a fundraising effort for awareness, attention, and access. In reaction to the recent abortion bans in Georgia and Alabama, Brumley put out a call on Facebook, offering the script free of royalty to anyone who wanted to put up a benefit reading, house party, or gathering. 'All you need are some tablets, a group of friends willing to donate to the Yellowhammer Fund, ACLU, the Center for Reproductive Rights or independent clinics in need.'

Because Williams has so successfully gotten us cheering for Maggie, we in the audience would very much like to see Maggie triumphantly dragging Brick into bed in the final frame, and an interpretation like director Judith Ivey's, which all but promises that, is bound to be a crowd-pleaser. But if a director chooses to make that easy initial choice, that will be about the last easy thing the director will find in this play.

BWW Review: THE HUMANS Gets Weird on Multiple Levels at Pittsburgh Public Photo BWW Review: THE HUMANS Gets Weird on Multiple Levels at Pittsburgh Public
by Greg Kerestan - Nov 20, 2017

If you want to discuss mystery, and I think we need to at this point, there are two essential tropes that must be considered. First, we have Chekhov's gun- if a seemingly important thing is brought up, even casually, near the beginning, it will prove to be important by the end. (Case in point: Chekhov introduces a gun early in Hedda Gabler, and somebody gets shot by the end of the evening.) Second, we have the opposite of Chekhov's gun, the red herring- sometimes, a seemingly important thing is brought up, even casually, to divert attention and create misdirection from what is truly important. (Case in point, Sigmund Freud stated that anything longer than it is wide represented a phallic icon, but justified his own smoking by stating 'sometimes, a cigar can be just a cigar,' not emblematic of anything else.)
