It is rare and wonderful when so much comedy comes out of something as caustic as "Becky Shaw," and Dobama Theatre’s superb production doesn’t miss a gag or an opportunity to activate the gag reflex.

Gina Gionfriddo has written a play that is both fun and thought provoking.  It gets a marvelous production at Dobama.  This is theatre at its best.  The director, the cast, and the technical staff all deserve kudos!!!   Ah, if only every night at the theater could be like this!

Mark Horning

Becky Shaw is “in your face” combat theater that keeps tightening up the tension until your ears begin to ring.  It is equal parts drama/comedy/mystery/morality that takes no prisoners.  The surprise ending will having you hoping for a sequel.  See this with your spouse.  It will make your relationship look like a bed of roses by comparison.

Christine Howey

Thanks to a tight production that fairly twangs under the direction of Donald Carrier, the playwright’s sharp-edged dialogue shoves the audience down a perilous, icy chute on well-oiled roller skates.
