Kellie Overbey, Emily Walton and Mary Bacon in Women Without Men

Review | Women Without Men | By Hazel Ellis | Directed by Jenn Thompson | Mint Theater

… the test is in the work … 

This richly characterized and surprising play by a pioneering Irish woman playwright tells us that —– women without men are a very sad lot!  It’s a fine play though.

Review | Natural Affection by William Inge | Directed by Jenn Thompson | TACT, The Actors Company Theatre

… It’s no Picnic … 

… but it’s engaging and suspenseful, and in this beautifully produced, well cast and acted production, it gives a chance to see a rarely produced play by William Inge.

Inge is, after all, one of America’s most successful and prolific playwrights – author of Come Back, Little Sheeba, Picnic (1953 Pulitzer Prize), Bus Stop, The Dark At The Top of the Stairs, as well as screenplays including Splendor in the Grass (1963 Academy Award for “Best Writing, Story and Screenplay”).
