Dobama Theatre is at its best when presenting modest plays that rely on choice words and fine acting to do the heavy lifting. Greg Pierce’s “Slowgirl,” a sensitively drawn and delicately presented one-act contemplation on the healing of the human spirit – fits the bill in fine fashion.
SLOWGIRL is a well-written script that keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting for what surprising revelation will reveal itself next. Dobama’s production values enhance the text, resulting in a must-see evening of theater.
The combination of two good actors, an amazing set, fine direction, subdued atmospheric sounds plus a bit of mystery makes this production well worth braving the ice and snow of our Cleveland winter in order to venture out to see.

Tense, funny and tragic, "Slowgirl" is filled with big ideas and seismic emotions played here with a delicate touch, a marvel of understatement that makes the eventual earthquake of revelation all the more shattering.
