Review by ROLLAND PETRELLO

What I liked

Layered script, simple staging, and depth of acting, all came together for a taut performance.

What I didn't like

This is already much more fully realized than I expected for a fringe show.

My overall impression

An incredible evening of theatre! The script was tight and nuanced, resisting easy answers to the problems posed. The comedic moments provided welcome emotional relief at just the right moments. The script was brought beautifully to life by Ms. Johnson, who was so perfect for the role it seemed to have been written for her. Her ability to balance the conflicting pressures that women face in our society kept the audience rooting for her throughout.

TREASON

A father rules a made-up nation with his family as his only subjects. When his son takes the mission too far and his daughter questions everything, he fights for power in the face of family, country, and reality.

Shiva for Anne Frank

A celebration of Jewish identity, girlhood, and the life of an extraordinary young woman that begs the question, did she just make Anne Frank's death about herself? Arrive early for bagels and babka!
