Recent Reviews for Laughing Stock


 “If you need a good laugh (and who doesn’t at tax time!), then Role Players Ensemble’s “Laughing Stock” will fit the bill. . . . Charles Morey’s comedy had me doubled over with laughter as the story of a funky summer stock company trying to survive in a New England barn unfolds. While the plot is simple - perform three shows in repertory and try to break even - the crazy characters make this show a gem.”  Curtain Calls by Sally Hogarty, East Bay Times, April 19, 2017

 “The production really shines in occasional moments of absolute chaos, such as a catastrophically glitch-ridden performance of “Dracula,” with Rob Evans’ sound design, Christian V. Mejia’s lighting and costumer Lisa Danz’s props all going riotously awry. . . . Ultimately it’s a sentimental ode to the temporary family that forms around a show, bound together by all the havoc, heartbreak and giddy triumph they experience together.”  Sam Hurwitt, East Bay Times, April 21, 2017
