by Derek McCracken - Nov 10, 2019

Set in contemporary Ballybeg, Ireland, the image-laden story of MOLLY SWEENEY commands our attention as we listen closely to visualize what is being described to us from contrasting perspectives. In words and movement, the measured cadence of this economically directed nested narrative metes out minor revelations, each shedding a little more light on how agency and ambition create conflict in an ocularcentric society.

by Kristen Morale - Jun 14, 2018

Presented by Theater Breaking Through Barriers and under the direction of Christopher Burris, The Fourth Wall is anything but inhibiting, especially in terms of its creation. This Off-Broadway company brings actors with and without disabilities together to break stereotypes and portray how little there is separating all those who wish to bring their love of theater to an audience. The collaborative efforts of a diverse cast are proven successful in this rather momentous production of a show not many people can acknowledge as having seen.
