OTHER BOTHER presented by Performance Gallery as part of the 2016 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. You can read the show description here.
If one group personifies the word “fringe,” it would have to be the Performance Gallery, a Cincinnati-based collaborative of theatre artists, and the only organization that can claim a presence in all 13 Cincinnati Fringe Festivals.
Written and created by Derek Snow and the OTHER BOTHER ensemble, the play takes a surreal look our learned biases. The story begins literally in womb as the ensemble discovers the downside of finding illumination.
Fun, quirky, and at times, outright weird, the play is particularly timely given the current atmosphere of our country. The six-person ensemble, deftly directed by Regina Pugh, handles the challenging material well.
BTW if you have a light sensitivity, theater might not be your best choice for entertainment. Regardless, yelling “Quit shining the light in our eyes” from the audience is never appropriate behavior.
I would enjoy hearing what you think about the show or my review. All I ask is that you express your opinion without attacking someone else’s opinion. You can post your comments below.
