Over at the Boston Globe, Don Aucoin has some incredibly nice things to say about The Farm. Choice quotes:
“The Farm, directed by David R. Gammons, signals that 27-year-old McGough is well on his way to fulfilling the significant promise he’s shown for some time.”
“Dale Place…delivers a mesmerizing performance.”
“Parker is played with compellingly intense focus and control by Lindsey McWhorter.”
“Gammons and his creative team, especially sound designer David Remedios and lighting designer Karen Perlow, conjure a brooding atmosphere.”
In short: everybody’s great. Go see this show!
(Aucoin also says the play is an “ambitious blend of John le Carre and Franz Kafka.” If only he’d seen the first draft, where Finn turns into a cockroach at the end.)
