MINI REVIEW

This modern reimagining of one of the Bards darker comedies is bold and culturally relevant, but doesnt deliver on emotional depth. The plot resonates as timely within the context of #MeToo as we witness men exploiting the authority of their social positions simply because they can. The diversity of gender and sexual orientation among the cast gives this production a fresh approach and a sense of urgency. Yet despite the inspired staging and strong supporting players, this morality play doesnt quite capture the complicated dynamics of oppression and abuse.
