COMMENTS:

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors was very well written and the actors were good, however I must have missed something in the metaphor that the writer was trying to get across. The actors were good and had very believable accents, but something about the concept just didn't do it for me. I got lost between what was actually real and what was fake. The play centered around a man who lost his arm, but everyone around him could still see his arm, and therefore didn't believe him. I was still with the play at that point. It was when an elf entered the picture that things started to get hazy. There was no point in the play that I did not believe the actors, however I did have trouble understanding exactlywhat was going on and ultimatley what the play was trying to prove.

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

None
