By Conor McPherson
Directed by Michael Matthews
Laguna Beach, CA
October 17-November 8, 2018
‘’…always entertaining with an exceptionally strong acting ensemble superbly directed by Michael Matthews, who helmed the brilliant “End of the Rainbow” at the playhouse just a couple of months ago..’’
‘’During the two acts in director Michael Matthews’ tone-perfect telling, the outside world shrinks away, an audience raptly immersed in each curse, laugh, bellow and silence.
The key to Matthews’ success began at the start of his directorial mission: casting. For this play to work, we need five actors in utter balance, forging unique identities but able to bellow over the top of the next one in a way that makes the flaws in each person emerge in relationship to the larger ensemble.’’
