Some of the staging made it hard for all audience members to see actors' faces but not for long at any given time. Just a nit regarding this excellent production - great acting and script. Highly recommended.

Pinter's play is a favorite of mine. I found the actor who portrayed Jerry especially outstanding. Unfortunately, the other two main characters did not inhabit their roles quite as successfully. I found this production lacking in creativity, in...continued

5/9's of this show is highly involving, due to the presence of the actor playing robert, who proves that fine, true acting often comes down to doing 'nothing.' while the two other principals are indicating all of their angst -- furrowed brows,...continued

Fantastic performance of this Pinter play! Really loved the show. We were very impressed with the way a small, underfunded theatre company could put on such a professional performance! Don't miss out on this!

This play was very enjoyable and the location so convenient. Then actors were all very seasoned and believable and we had a wonderful time. Not a bad seat in the house! Very cozy set too.
