“Great Falls” stirs up the mysteries between love and fear, men and women, youth and middle age. Think Creon and Antigone on a road trip.
It’s funny and awful in the way that family is funny and awful. It’s about painful separation and undeniable connection and confused loyalties and transformation or, anyway, the possibility of transformation if you’re willing to go down in the dark and wrestle an angel for it, if, like Monkey Man in the play, you’re willing to walk 50 miles for it.
It’s my favorite of Lee Blessing’s plays so far.
I can’t wait to start rehearsal.
