review

Frankly, the title says it all -- because that's what I was doing throughout most of the show.  Screaming Silently is a trainwreck, I'm afraid, and no amount of cute stage business or earnest delivery can save it.  The play is about four adult siblings reunited upon the death of their egomaniac film-director father, one Giles Forbes.  In the style of such stories, the siblings return home to pay their last respects and rivalries and dark secrets emerge.

The central flaw as I see it is that the playwright, Shane Rochon, takes on far more than he can handle with this...

An invitation for y'all - feel free to join our Fringe Review Team for a workshop about the art of reviewing shows at the Fringe! We'll be meeting up on Monday August 25 at 7:00 pm at the Fringe Office Common Room (that's 1398 Cartwright Street). There will be drinks and discussion (likely in that order) - how can you say no?
