THE PLAY: While her other sister vegetates on the couch, a young woman rises above her recent depression by getting a job as an art teacher. She also interacts with her 18-year-old assistant (who has issues of his own) and her mother (who never appears onstage).

 

THE PRODUCTION: This is a slight little play that doesn’t offer much in the way of complex character development, interesting plot or distinctive dialogue. The trio of VCU students have plenty of energy, but teeter on overacting. Scott Melton, as the principal/father, brings some maturity (literally and artistically) to his often comic role. Director Keith Fitzgerald has wisely kept the pacing brisk. The tech elements are low-budget basic.

 

THE POINT: This slight play has an energetic cast.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
