Barrymore Award Nomination, Outstanding New Play
By Aaron Posner with Bernard Gray. Adapted from the novel by Steve Lopez.
An early work from when I was still finding my way as an adaptor of literature. This haunting story is very Philadelphia-based, and took an almost mythological approach to the dark and difficult sides of thug complicated town. Narrated through various forms of media, the adaptation told a worthwhile story in the best way were able to tell it.
“... it has a narrative drive that simply doesn’t quit, and Posner’s resourceful staging keeps it humming along... The production is terrific.”
