Mimesophobia (Or Before and After)

Sand and Glass Productions
August 8 - 23, 2008

Review by peanutduck

Two filmmakers create a movie based on actual murder/suicide. But where truth ends and fiction begins quickly becomes unclear. Like Hitchcock for the ears, action lies in spoken (occasionally overwhelming) text – dizzyingly bizarre, rich with suspense, black humor. Some beats mis-hit, could be more physicality; however, refreshingly original, skillfully done.

"the best cast of the season"? what an obnoxious way to sell your show.

LOVED this show when it was read in JAW a while back, and was disappointed when PCS declined to produce it. Very glad it will be performed here in Portland at last. I expect this is going to be a real event.

Unique, thought-provoking work, innovative staging, and a strong cast. Well worth a look.
