Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm's new play gets a solid premiere from Force of Nature Productions. An intriguing premise serves as the springboard for an existential examination of three characters' life choices. Come to explore the mystery of what brought them together and find out what might tear them apart.
Sharp, funny, wryly observed and very entertaining, the show is anything but a complete waste of time. Steve Chang takes risks in life as well as on the stage. His laid back manner belies a courage that led him on a journey from quitting his dead-end, soul-killing job, through a psychedelic vision-quest in a South American jungle, to the overly bright lights of Las Vegas. Well worth taking the journey with him.
Feast is a highly polished, archly theatrical, frightening and funny comedy from writer, producer, star Dylan Wallace. It's a bold critique of the stifling horrors of family and the indifference (or malevolence) of society. In the transgressive tradition of Joe Orton or Jean Genet (or more recent offerings like the films Eating Raoul or 1989's Parents), Feast literally pushes the bounds of good taste. The production has a strong point of view and marshals every element toward its purpose. The staging is strong and stylized. The acting is uniformly excellent. The sound design, consisting of a panoply of classical musical selections, underscores the mood nicely. The script is solid and brings to mind some of the best of the absurdists. It was quite a fun evening of theater.
