Amy Juras from MD Theatre Guide characterizes the play well: "It is a drama that brings raw feelings to the surface, complex questions to mind. It is not a play that children under 12 will necessarily enjoy or understand; it is a production that the glib theatergoer probably will want to avoid. It is however an absolute must see show for those with faith and interest in the moral choices that average people make."
We continue performances through March 8th. We have very limited seating (~70 seats), so I recommend reserving your tickets online as soon as possible. You can do that on the Compass Rose Theater website. We run Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm, and select Saturdays at 2pm.
I hope to see some of you there!

"Poignantly directed, with the care and creativity you normally would see at much bigger play houses, Lucinda Merry-Browne, has a great aptitude for literary interpretation." - Amy Juras, MD Theatre Guide
"Most impressive was the work of the chorus, representing the women of Canterbury, devoted members of the church and parishioners of Becket. Crisp diction, magnificent vocal control and individual characterizations all combine to stunning effect." - Jeffrey Walker, DC Theatre Scene
"Even though each woman has solo lines, they do not upstage each other and manage to be individuals within a cohesive unit." - Danielle Angeline, DC Metro Theater Arts
