My first Playground. Excellent scripts, great direction, and marvelous acting talent combine to make a varied and very enjoyable 90-minute program. Wish I'd been going all along now! Definitely plan to make this a regular monthly event in my life.

These evenings score very high in the price-to-value ratio. Several of the playlets were very good, even the least successful were interesting, and the acting is amazing considering how quickly this is all put together. Playground is definitely...continued

This was the best collection of scripts I had seen so far this year, and I attended four Playgrounds. I was blown away by the scripts and the talent on stage. This continues to be one of the bright spots on my calendar every month.

The PlayGround selections were great--if a little uneven. Great acting, in the main (Stacy Ross was fantastic.) Directors should remember that it is a thrust stage. Actors tended to ignore sight lines of those sitting on the side sections of...continued

Very delightful evening of six plays written in 4.5 days by authors/playwrights. The actors have 1.5 hours to read the script and prepare, and the play itself lasts ten minutes. The structure itself creates a real freshness and excitement, and the...continued

I was surprised at the mediocre choice of plays. Didn't care too much for the
actors, as they didn't really seem to put their hearts into the presentations, although some were ok. Have been going to this for a while now and was disappointed with...continued

I've been a regular Berk Rep subscriber for over 10 years. They present outstanding theater with outstanding set design that is always intriging.

I finally tried Playground and really liked it. There were 6 or 7 10-15 minute plays presented...continued

Unfortunately, this was one of Playground lesser moments. Seeking inspiration from Eugene O'Neill produced some turgid efforts that didn't live up to prior writings. Two of the six playlets were worth the viewing, and the efforts of the actors and...continued

Almost a full house at BRT saw seven new short plays stimulated by a theme provided from the plays of Eugene O'Neill -- "Pipe Dream." It's great that Playground gives a voice to journeyman writers, and that they can reach an audience in the BRT...continued

It was a very intimate experience with very fresh and fantastic performances by really well casted actors.
Playwrights were given a topic. The pieces were written within a month, given to actors on Friday, performed and enjoyed on Monday!
