This year we’ve been treated to a series of memorable, interesting, well produced shows. It’s been a pleasure.
Most recently, and still running are Becky Shaw and Stick Fly. They are both excellent shows. They are maybe similar in that they are new plays, I think they are set more or less in the present, representing complicated and interesting relationship dilemmas, yet with humor. (Whoops, as I write that, I wonder, do I like them because that sounds like a TV Show?) I recommend you see them both though, they are really worth while.
But, on the positive: here are the great plays of this season at the Huntington:
- Becky Shaw (Relationship drama: two love triangles overlapping and a really awkward double date.)
- Stick Fly (Relationship drama surrounding a young couple who is seeking and not getting the approval of the family)
- Fences (Fiftys father and son story)
- All My Sons (World War II family story involving fraud and redemption)
Way to go Huntington! I think Becky Shaw and Stick Fly are still running. Go see them.
