Marie and Bruce

New House Theatre
May 19, 2005

New stage in town takes on modern, roiling relationship but doesn’t quite hit the stride necessary to make this dark comedy work. Conceptual, site-specific staging was a good first step. However, production also needed both a sense of style as well as shadow. Perhaps a heightened rather than realistic approach.

The play was unique, bringing a sense of personality to the production. The choice of play and use of the home-as-stage inventive and applaudable. An overall enjoyable play with a palpable sense of angst and dry wit. The dichotomy between the characters somewhat severe, leaving one to wonder what made them ever get together in the first place.
