BWW Review: World Premiere of Bess Wohl's MAKE BELIEVE at Hartford Stage Photo BWW Review: World Premiere of Bess Wohl's MAKE BELIEVE at Hartford Stage
by Joseph Harrison - Sep 16, 2018

Do you remember when you were a child and the best of days were made up of adventures in the woods, tea parties with your stuffed animals, and fantastic sword fights between friends? These exciting, but entirely made up worlds entertained our young minds for hours on end and, for some, kept us from focusing on the harsh realities of life. For the characters at the center of Bess Wohl's world premiere play, MAKE BELIEVE, the opening production of Hartford Stage's 2018 - 2019 season, childhood fantasy fills a void and serves as a protective shield. Imagination shelters the children at the center of the play (and even their grown-up selves) from their real-life problems and provides a shared bond that carries on throughout their lives.
