Aglet Theatre Company
SUGGESTS you GO SEE Minor Character at Sharon Playhouse!
We saw Minor Character at Sharon Playhouse Saturday night. If you love theatrical adventures that will challenge you, this is a must-see.
The play, which has been performed in different venues in and around Manhattan the past three years, was imported from New York with the original writers (who also act,) dramaturg and director as well as actors who have performed it in the past. The writing, direction and acting are flawless.
This is a complex and stimulating play that requires your undivided attention. The company has taken six translations of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya and incorporated elements of them into a unified script. There are repetitive phrases, actors play several characters changing identities within a scene or even within a speech. Men play women, women play men. It helps to know Uncle Vanya; there is a synopsis in the program to help you re-acquaint yourselves with the play.
Sharon Playhouse has a new administration that is changing the theatre’s approach to its scheduling. They continue to offer family entertainment – The Music Man and Footloose – but they are also presenting a different kind of sophisticated theatre experience that deserves to be supported.,
Minor Character runs through June 25 with several matinees. Go to their website atwww.sharonplayouse.org for more information.
