If the sensation of walking into the Green Room of The Jerry Springer Show on "Dysfunctional Siblings Week" was what none too fragile was going for, then its production of Neil LaBute’s “In A Forest, Dark and Deep” is a huge success.
Sean Derry and Leighann Niles Delorenzo light up the none too fragile stage in this battle of deception, lies, and false values. Though overly long, Neil LaBute’s IN A FOREST, DARK AND DEEP still makes for an interesting evening of theater.
"In a Forest, Dark and Deep" is a chilling, suspenseful tale that, little by little, peels back the truth about the darkest, ugliest side of one character’s nature.

Even though In a Forest isn’t one of LaBute’s best, it deals with actual issues and isn’t just another collection of dysfunctional people who show up in the same place. And for that we can be truly grateful.
The two performers are superior. They work hard for 100 minutes of fighting and battling for truth to be revealed. However, they are swimming upstream in a script that is not ready for the stage.To see a full review of this show, read David's posts at Talkin' Broadway
