-Theatre in Review: Help (The Shed)

Theatre in Review: Help (The Shed)

The title of Claudia Rankine's play feels a tad ironic since few leading ladies have the self-possession of April Matthis. Comfortably ensconced at center stage, exuding authority, she addresses us in a voice that works as a ...More
