Unfortunately it’s an all to familiar tale due to the myriad toxic aspects in our culture regarding homosexuality and masculinity. Don Storm’s script tackles the subject with sensitivity but does not shy away from the ugly, disturbing parts. Two game actors who deliver intense performances that hit hard. You can’t walk away from this without a pit in your stomach, and that is a testament to this whole team. Jesse Stevenson and Conor Sheehan hit all the right marks as they make you feel tremendous compassion for two young men whose awful behavior is caused by inner torment. Good stuff!

Good use of rear screen projection, and excellent singing and guitar playing by Jesse Stevensen only adds to the caliber of this production. Tommy’s Room shocks you as it breaks your heart.

Highly recommended.

Storm directed his play and a second pair of eyes or a dramaturge might have helped. There is no real structure or momentum to the piece.
