    Fish Out of Water

    Exiles on Main Street

    Exile is not simple. Both a physical reality and a psychological state, it can be imposed by governments or chosen as a means of survival. It breeds nostalgia and longing, shame and guilt. It can be a burden or a source of pride. But in all instances...

    Who's on First?

    After successfully tackling the Bard in their first annual Shakespeare Festival, the plucky Florida Playwrights' Theatre now presents something completely different, and does it almost as well. Graceland, by Ellen Byron, and Line, by Israel Horowitz,...

    Southern Discomfort

    The ability to select and produce a satisfying entertainment largely depends on knowing when a specific form is past its prime and when it's gaining popularity. By presenting Sandra Deer's dull and meandering So Long on Lonely Street the New River Re...
