Review On The Masher


Bob Rich - Tolucan Times

Registered Critic


The play is highly compelling. We believe that sorrowful, concerning events are unfolding in front of us, thanks to the impassioned cast. Thanks to the atmospheric lighting, and a convincing set that feels like an otherworldly factory, the setting is effectively mysterious.

I recommend this production for its sobering message, which is delivered with humor and truly visceral, impactful emotion. The play is a cautionary tale, yet the humanity in the writing provides a ray of hope.
