Fringe Website Audience Reviews

  • “You’re going to see some very creative dynamic formal experimentation hitched to a storyline that just builds up steam until the unshakable ending. And it turns out the formal tricks are really all about the content.”
  • “The story line has just the right amount of mystery and suspense–each scene blends wonderfully into the next. This is a play that is captivating to watch and great to talk about later–two thumbs up!”
  • “Anyone familiar with Southern culture will quickly recognize the conflicts and emotions that the playwright, and actors quite successfully bring to life. And it’s more than a little bit nutty.”
