The play begins with a lot of characters talking over each other, and seems rather hard to follow, but it’s best to just let the words flow over you and help transport you into the world of the play. As it continues, the characters become more clearly delineated, and the plot clarifies. The play starts out fairly realistic/surrealistic, and veers toward farce at the end as the action comes to a head. Each actor plays two characters, which also seems a bit confusing but becomes more clear as the play progresses. Liz Adams does a great job, and has a lot of the heavy lifting for the play, as Medea/Daughter. Her characters drive a lot of the plot, and is onstage almost the entire time. Tim Hoover plays Orpheus with just the right amount of rock star attitude. Daniel Boudreau is a real standout, with his understated, but very genuine portrayal of Peleus. He doesn’t have a lot of action in the play, but is compelling every time he takes the stage. The rest of the cast does a great job with the material, but the whole performance felt a bit under-rehearsed. Some of the transitions needed tightening, and it felt as though the actors were occasionally grasping for lines. This being their first performance, I expect these bumps to be smoothed out over the next few performances.
