‘Ugly’ and funny female characters at TheatreWorks
“She was known all over Copiah Nation as inexpensive Xmas junk, and that was the least of it,” says Girl (Laura Her Bailey) at the start of “Crimes of the Center,” now at TheatreWorks, of her relative Meg (Sarah Moser).
What could be more intense than having automobile as Xmas trash?
Chick continues: “There was that whole sordid event with Doc Porter, making him a impact.”
The three Magrath siblings in Michelle Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning perform, published in 1978, have problems with a long-standing propensity to maim, both basically and metaphorically. For home Giovanna Sardelli, who first experienced the The southern portion of Medieval perform in higher education, that’s a big portion of its attraction. Its females, she creates in a director’s declaration, “were able to be upset, unpleasant, vengeful and greatly crazy without any responsibility to be awesome or wonderful.”
