Go Back to Where You Are by David Greenspan

Odyssey Theatre

West Coast Premiere at the Odyssey Theatre, July 2016

 

The play is meta-theatrical, the characters occasionally speaking directly to the audience, commenting on themselves and on the script. This device is not solely charming. It also aids the audience because the play is not for the straying mind...

More precisely, it’s a complex play — in structure, themes and manageability — by a director who must piece together fragments of conversations while creating instantaneous changes of time and place. Bart DeLorenzo helms here, and he makes it all so comprehensible, the acting so beautifully understated yet lively that the play’s 80 minutes refresh us like our favorite summer beverage." -- Dany Margolies, LA Daily News
