Reid said ” light and projections design, soundscape and a spare but retro set” allowed audience members to easily transition between imaginary and real scenes.
Reid also stated under director Ann Filmer’s guidance adult actresses made for “believable kids.”
“We really try to make each production honest, entertaining and thought provoking,” said director Ann Filmer.
Filmer stated that she was pleased with Reid’s review of the play.
“The most important response is from our audience and how they are effected and moved by our work,” said Filmer.
Pinkolandia tells the story of two young sisters exiled from Chile to the strange land of Reagan-era Wisconsin. The sisters travel through fantasies of glaciers, talking bears and Nazi-fighting revolutionaries to uncover their family’s past.
“It is a very imaginative play, there are many worlds created”, said Filmer.
Pinkolandia will be playing through May 10 at 16th Street Theater located at 6420 16th St in Berwyn, Il. Tickets are available for $18. For information call 708-795-6704 or visit www.16thstreettheater.org.
