THE PLAY: Nine vingettes about love take place in and around a fictional town in Maine.

 

THE PRODUCTION: Thanks to director Tom Width’s skilled light touch and a quartet of talented actors, every comic opportunity of this quirky play is richly realized (there are a few sweetly touching moments, as well). Louise Mason and Matt Hackman turn in engaging performances, but it’s the breakout revelations of Lucian Restivo and Mariea Terrell who create unique, enjoyable characters and reveal colossal (and subtle) comic skills. Width’s simple staging puts the focus on the performances, which pays off with continually enchanting charms.  Width works his visual magic with an picturesque diorama that features stars, trees and lovely projections. (Running time: 1:55)

 

 

THE POINT: You can’t help but be charmed by a visit to this fictional town that’s brought to life with delightful whimsy.

 

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

 

At Swift Creek Mill Theatre thru 10/22
