Excellent acting. Well written play. I enjoyed the twist of words. I was entertained every minute. I marvelled at how the actors could remember their lines. Hope to see more from this new company.

Acting was superb but dialogue went so fast and furious, it was hard to keep up with story line. It did amaze me how such talented actors could memorize so much dialogue and change characters. Accents of characters needed work but easily...continued

Description

The Twentieth Century Way was awarded the 2011 PEN Award for Drama and the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival Award for Overall Excellence in Production of a Play, garnering critical accolades from publications like the New York Times and Variety. Based on a little-known incident in history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors, auditioning for a film, end up juggling roles that eventually lead to entrapment of homosexuals for “social vagrancy” in the Long Beach, California of 1914.
