ACT Reviews 2022-2023 Season

spiked hair and plenty of dark eyeliner. He delivered his dialogue with confidence and seemed well at ease with those of more experience with whom he shared the stage. I hope I get to see him act in more plays in the future. Bill Platt nearly stole the show with his performance of “Bill” – the confused patient that went about with a dazed and vacant look on his face. The speed that he was thrown off stage in a wheel chair was a highlight and had the audience belly laughing. For a farce, the set has to be functional with plenty of doorways for characters to appear from, and have room for physical comedy to take place. This set, designed and built by Alan Reidsma with his team was great. There were plenty of doors and the scene where Leslie, Matron and Dr. Mike shuffled along outside the window was a hoot! As was the Harold Lloyd type escapades of Bill holding onto a drain pipe. A farce depends a lot on timing of actions and dialogue and this cast were up to the job. This was a fast-paced, high energy romp that generated plenty of laughs. What a cracking way to end the season!
