Stephen Metcalfe's The Tragedy of the Commons, with Brian Kerwin Reviews & Ratings
Excellent writing and acting. Kerwin and Hicks were amazing. This is a real treat for the L.A. audience - a Broadway-level production in a very intimate space.report as inappropriate
A stunning opportunity to enjoy the work of a leading actor. The play is still resonating in my mind. Original, very emotional, intelligent, Broadway-caliber theater that would hold attention on a much larger stage.report as inappropriate

The acting was superb.
We enjoyed this performance a lot.A very pleasant evening spent.
Thanks to all actors.
Brian Kerwin had quite a task to perform and did very well at it. The small space presented a challenge to the fourth wall, but all did well with that, too. We talked about the play all the way home.report as inappropriate
Entertaining, thought-provoking, at times heart-breaking. Brian Kerwin and Leslie Hicks are superb actors. Don't miss this one!report as inappropriate
This is a deep and difficult psychological play, beautifully acted, and well directed, about a family who lost their son in NY on 9/11 and how that incident affected their lives.report as inappropriate
A truly outstanding performance by Brian Kerwin! Leslie Hicks is equally great. Excellent cast all around. Intelligent writing and relatable themes. Exceeded my expectations, See it. You won't be sorry.report as inappropriate
Interesting story line. Cast first rate. Strong first act, a slightly less effective second act.
Good direction and adequate set.
Comfortable seats and easy parking.
Rewarding evening of theatre.
If you can possibly get in to see this, DO IT! One of the best evenings you will spend in the theatre with uniformly excellent performances and a spectacular Brian Kerwin in the lead. You only have one weekend left. GO!report as inappropriate
So nice to see these great actors together.report as inappropriate
Despite a borderline heavy theme the acting was all top notch!report as inappropriate
my husband (who's a hard sell) and i both loved the play. i didn't know what to expect from such a small theater, but was so pleasantly surprised. the acting by the 2 main characters was outstanding. i have recommended it to several people.report as inappropriate
Pros: Excellent acting; nice job of staging in a very small venue.
Cons: Play moved along at an agonizingly slow rate; theme was hackneyed; virtually no plot. I usually enjoy productions at the Ruskin, but I thought this one would never end.report as inappropriate
