Alexandra Reviews On The Brink by Dirty Feet Productions
Many theaters are not wealthy enough to afford a single venue simply for themselves. This was the cause for the theater that showcased "On the Brink" a play consisting of two acts that had nothing to do with one another. The play took place within a building that from first glance is one the holds criminal courts, but looking closer one realizes it also houses on its second floor, three or four theaters. Of the four theaters one of them was showcasing On the Brink.
The room where this play took place consisted of twenty or so seats, on each side of the stage. The two plays showcased were primarily politically based. The first act of the play contain a main theme of one should not speak of their ideals if one cannot back them up with fighting. I, for one disagree with this idea, but that was the main theme. One had to give credit to the actors of this show, they tried to do the best they could with an act that was written poorly. The act displayed ideas that weren't that fresh or new, and did not elaborate enough on its characters to give them depth.
The second act of the play was an entirely different theme. It consisted of a quarreling couple, and towards the end touched on abortion. The abortion aspect of the play was not elaborated on. After the end of the play the author left his views on it in ambiguity, starting by implying his pro-life views and ending by saying that he's not against pro-choice. The writing here as well was not thought through and could have been written better.
Although the theater was hard to find, and the plays
were not well written the actors tried to do the best
they could. Would I see a show in this theater again -
probably not, but you never know, maybe this was just
a bad day.
