Third Rail Repertory Theatre
May 19, 2006; closes June 17, 2006
Excellent — a play that makes the season worthwhile. Modern Irish absurdity presented with Third Rail’s consistently high level of craftsmanship, a level of professionalism that should be Portland theatre’s baseline, not its bar. Opening-night audience seemed one feckin’ laugh track, though play’s humor and humanity lay beyond lilting punch lines.
