MATTHEW ROBINSON encore judge certified reviewer June 09, 2019
A well acted, well directed and crafted show that drops you right into the world of these characters and hooks you into to their daily life as it reaches a crucial apex. I truly enjoyed the world I was in as you effortlessly grow to care for all of the characters; flaws and all. A strong and resonant piece.... full review
DONALD STORM certified reviewer June 14, 2019
A solid realistic story about hard working people in a part of the country that deals with devastating natural disasters, and how these people deal with their desperate situation. This Way Yonder is also a family drama that captures the conflicts of interests between older and younger generations.... full review
DAVID ROSENBERG certified reviewer June 15, 2019
Beautiful and heartbreaking - despite some slight performance issues that can be tweaked (some projection issues, and one of the characters in my mind was played over the top), gifted playwright Montana Cypress paints with a vivid indelible brush. The characters are compelling, memorable and linger with you long after the show is over. One of the best of the Fringe for sure. I could see this playing Off-Broadway.... full review
MITCHELL BISSCHOP certified reviewer June 25, 2019
The show was beautifully crafted. I keep going back to this piece throughout this fringe and thinking about the way the whole play shakes out. ... full review

Full disclosure: I am not a 'certified reviewer' because I was slated to see another show, but I arrived too late to get into to it, and rushed over to This Way Yonder. But I'm so glad that I did. I was parked in a one hour parking space (the show is over an hour) and I didn't care. I thought the play was well worth whatever I'd pay in parking fines.... full review
ANGELA BEEVERS certified reviewer June 25, 2019
What an amazing cast. Marjorie and Kelly had amazing chemistry up there as mother and daughter. This is a story I haven't seen before, you really feel the setting as the staging and sound and lighting design makes you feel as though you have entered a bayou! It's such a sweet and fun story, with some really great acting in the center. ... full review
JIM HANNA certified reviewer June 25, 2019
Monica Martin is rightfully adored at Fringe where she helps so many others realize their theatrical dreams. It is a goddamned joy to see her flexing her own skill and vision with her utterly engaging, precise and compassionate direction of a remarkable cast. Marjorie Knight delivers one of the finest performances at this year's Fringe with able support from a strong ensemble of actors, especially Omar Salazar. It's so great to see a solid, narrative play with out the bells and whistles of so many Fringe experiments. Just solid acting, writing and direction in one of the best productions I've seen this Summer.... full review
ELYSSA PHILLIPS certified reviewer June 24, 2019
I am so glad I came out to see "This Way Yonder". What a compelling script that is both real and raw - with subtle humor mixed in! The cast is really great and the leading lady - Marjorie - just SLAYS in that role. If I wasn't trying to see more Fringe - I would for sure see this again!... full review
BILLY RAY BREWTON certified reviewer June 22, 2019
A complex and affecting tale with a skilled attention to detail in terms of time and place. The show really evokes a lot of authentic emotion, and the result is something purely theatrical. ... full review
ANNIE C. WRIGHT certified reviewer June 20, 2019
I've seen other work by this playwright, and I always appreciate the poetic language woven throughout. Felt a bit of a Tennessee Williams vibe in this particular piece. ... full review
