A Moving Comment from Morely Walker

Much to my surprise and delight, I awoke this morning to find a very unexpected shout out to the play in Morley Walker’s column in the Winnipeg Free Press. For those of you who don’t know Morley, he is a notoriously picky reviewer, so it is especially exciting that he liked the play. You can find the whole article here, but below are some excerpts that I particularly enjoyed.

…beyond the easy identification with the play’s universal themes, it was the quality of the writing, the acting and the direction that left me gasping with approval.

The hilarious sparring between Sobler and Daniel Kash reminded me, oddly enough, of Neil Simon’s Odd Couple, a classic of 20th-century theatrical comedy.

Some Things You Keep was the most memorable evening of theatre I’ve had in years. I was expecting nothing special, but it blew me away. If there is justice in the world, this play will be picked up across the country.

  1. Alix,

    Is there aywhere I can get a printed copy of Some Things You Keep? Have you published it andit is for sale. I would like to read it after seeing you perform it. I also think it would be a great addition to our highschool (Miles Macdonell) library. We have avery vibrant drama program here.

    • Hi Janice,

      The play has not been published. I am hoping that will happen someday, sooner rather than later, but it has not happened yet. I can keep you posted on whether that happens. Thanks so much for coming, and I am so happy you enjoyed it! Say hi to tamara for me!
