Great start to the New Year at MRT

posted in Theater |

Richard Dresser is becoming a local favorite and the regional premiere of his latest play, A View of the Harbor at the Merrimack Repertory Theater is not to be missed. Smart, funny and provocative, with clever dialogue and convincing characters, this play will give you plenty to think about as you ponder the motivations and methods on display. We saw Harold Pinter’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, The Homecoming at the MRT a season or two ago (and hated it), but in this play, Dresser seems, in some way, to be paying homage to that work. While funnier and more accessible, it is on some level just as disturbing. Unlike Pinter’s play, this one is also enjoyable.

And by the way, Happy New Year! The blog’s been quiet due to holiday and family commitments, but we’re still here!
