Can’t read the Writing on the Wall: [hieroglyph] world premiere by SF Playhouse and Lorraine Hansberry Theatre
Two great companies collab for a show that uses a popular lie to tell a troubling rape narrative.
Sorry, Frank – it was NOT “a very good year”.
Still, there were bright spots to be found.
Marcus Gardley’s play is so close to perfection that it’s enough to drive you crazy that it doesn’t quite get there.
Not even amazing set design and two-out-of-three great performers can save an unforgivably terrible script in this Magic Theatre world premiere.
