The Other Place is a complex, thoughtful play that   reveals itself like a mobius strip: times and places bend and change throughout the piece. The acting
is suburb, the set is beautiful and the lighting 
and visual effects enhance the story as it unfolds and the audience discovers what has been happening in Julianna's life. Many of us left the theater in tears.

Let me say the stunning performance by the actors and the extraordinarily clever set design set the stage  for an uninterrupted 80 minutes of mystery, intrigue to  the very end leading to a standing ovation of  appreciation by a nearly sold out audience on opening night.

THE OTHER PLACE by Sharr White
    Directed by Charles Van Eman (2016)

After a initial "Wow," we waited until we were at home to marvel at the complexity of the play and how well it was done.  We could have gone to New York or London and not seen a better performance of a more brilliantly scripted play -- Clare and Bob K.

Talk about a Tour de Force!  Both Jennifer Wilson and the play itself are a no holds barred journey through the heart of darkness.  If it weren't for the supporting cast and excellent constructs of staging, you wouldn't be sure redemption was even possible.  It's rare to call theater "brave," but The Other Place lives that out and back
