The Garden Party

Review by peanutduck

Characters fluent in ridiculous cliché, doublespeak language of oppressors. Remove framework, add human self-reflection, yearning, and enjoy befuddlement. While cast euphemizes trippingly, few ably activate, explore text’s dynamics and story (there is one), which is why Moore’s Falk, an engaging, fully-realized man destroyed by the bureaucratic hell-machine, is doubly refreshing.

James Moore's excellent performace was of the character Faulk.
Jon Lee was the Director, I believe.
