The acting was top notch! And despite being billed as a psychological thriller, it was also very humorous as well!

This 2 person play was set in a small room -- actors were very close to the audience. It was so different from any other theater experience. Lots of fun -- good acting -- wine and cookies provided. We had a great time.

Expression Productions does it again with another fantastic presentation of Marcus Llyod's wry, twisted script. Their "pop-up theater" space at the Cartwright Hotel is the perfect intimate setting for the show. Diana Brown and Andrey Esterlis...continued

Free wine and cookies before were nice. The show was clever, layered. We had a small group so getting to chat with the actors after was icing on the cake. I highly recommend.

Amazing acting, considering only 2 actors in play. Set was a little too basic, but the intense and gripping plot more than made up for this. Definitely a production not to miss!

An intriguing script and an excellent portrayal by the lead actress was COMPLETELY derailed by the unspeakably terrible, worse-than-amateurish performance by the male lead (who's also the director). A sadly missed opportunity in a really welcoming...continued

Dead Certain was a suspensful, tense experience. The actors were brilliant and engaging. Altogether a very enjoyable theatrical experience. Gail

Decent show in a very small venue, not what I was expecting, but a pleasant surprise. A 2 person show and I thought the female lead was phenomenal.

Excellent actors, full of energy and passion. They won't let your attention and curiosity go down, nor even for a minute. The story is very intriguing and the venue, definitely unique, makes the whole experience even better.

Excellent psychological thriller, with scintillating performances by the lead actors. It became hard to separate the plot from reality and the immersive experience of being so close to the actors was truly breath-taking.

Highly recommended!
