Review On Treason

Victor Sotomayor


What I liked

The writing. What Eric DePriester has managed to do is represent every American politics in a family portrait that is meant to make the audience feel uncomfortable because the polarization is all too disturbingly familiar. Standout performances by Dave Crossland as Grant Wilson and his rebellious daughter Savannah played by Emma Center.

What I didn't like

The transitions were a bit too long in between when they switched from the kitchen to Grant’s office. Luckily I love the score so I didn’t mind it much.

My overall impression

Treason has a tension meter that starts to boil early on the show as we see the Wilsons fight over a board game up until we see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
Grant Wilson’s performance is authoritarian, mean, xenophobic, stubborn, violent, tyrannical yet you can’t take your eyes away from him.

Hi, everybody! Sweet, sweet, sweet!! I’m Victor Sotomayor and glad to be part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival community. Host of Italo’s Blog Talk Radio where I interview actors, directors about their theater productions. I also wrote, produced and directed The Oz Monologues for 2018 which received Sweet Ratings on the LemonMeter and currently working alongside Irina Kompa in her brand new Potato Nose production of The Journey of The Little Prince which I’m sure audiences will enjoy and find very sweet and inspiring as well. Thank you for supporting local theater and local artists. Have a super sweet time at the Hollywood Fringe!
