Possum Dreams

 

"Possum Dreams feels like a kinky, unhinged cousin to Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and God of Carnage; it's a play with similar DNA but willing to go further, break more windows, get into more trouble, than its older relations. In doing so, it's more absurd but somehow, more exhilarating . . . ."

 

          --Andrea Simakis, The Cleveland Plain Dealer

 

 

"Stunning performances in Possum Dreams"

         --April Helms, The News-Leader

"The places Possum Dreams goes are beyond conventional. The characters are vulgar, violent and sexually perverse, making the show extremely memorable, hilariously funny and uncannily realistic. The actors had a ball destroying the set, destroying each other and destroying all the boundaries to which theater generally adheres. Best of all, the audience reveled in this destruction and were left begging for more."

 

          --Gabi Levin in New York Theater Guide

 

"An amazing, intense experience . . . . this is a rip-snorting piece that rivals the intensity (if not the byzantine complexity) of Albee’s George and Martha, and other renowned on-stage wedded disasters."

          --Christine Howey, Rave and Pan

 

"Kudos to None Too Fragile for sticking to its edginess and bringing contemporary drama to the stage. Co-founder Sean Derry (who did a wonderful job bringing this new work to life) commented that the theater wants to bring “stories that need to be told.” This is one of them, and it is well worth seeing."

          --Roger Durbin, Knight Arts

 

"To say this work is intimate would be an understatement. The play, which runs about 100 minutes with no intermission, is a nonstop scene of domestic combat, both verbal and physical. . . . The play’s end is emotionally overwhelming as we realize that both Walter and Jan are afraid to face their mind-blowing new reality. In this moment of simple yet brilliant staging, we still wonder if there might be a smidgin of hope for this couple."

          --Kerry Clawson, The Akron Beacon Journal

 

"Andrew Narten and Leighann Niles DeLorenzo are superb . . . They rant, harass and taunt with glee. . . They each present several powerful and hysterical monologues which are worth the price of admission . . ."

          --Roy Berko, The News-Herald
