Review On JOAN and WHAT DID THEY SAY - An Evening of One Acts

Registered Critic


Two short plays offer thought-provoking perspectives. The first one-act play, Joan, by Bernadette Armstrong, provides a fascinating portrayal of famed actress Joan Crawford, reflecting back on her life. The second one-act, What Did They Say, by Wendy Winter, is an intimate window into a family trying to grapple with one another's differences. Both plays warmly suggest how to deal with challenging aspects of life.
