Maintaining Balance on a Bumpy "Road": New Ground Theatre's "Scotland Road"

(Warning: Though I’ve tried to be circumspect, details on Scotland Road’s mysteries may slip out. Proceed with caution.)

 

The psychological drama Scotland Road, the first production in New Ground Theatre’s 2005-6 season, is both entertaining and disheartening – entertaining because of the skill of director Michael Oberfield and his cast, disheartening because playwright Jeffrey Hatcher’s work doesn’t quite seem to deserve their skill.

Few stage sights are as thrilling as a cast of genuinely hungry actors, especially when they have genuinely meaty material to tear into. My Verona Productions’ Closer is a biting, at times painful, piece, yet it’s suffused with joy; the actors seem to be relishing the opportunity to verbally claw, scrape, and expose (often self-inflicted) wounds.

As usual, New Ground’s decision to tackle offbeat and challenging material is commendable, but its latest offering is so wrong-headed in execution that it makes you understand why audiences often shy away from the offbeat and challenging.

New Ground’s "An Infinite Ache" Anything but Painful

New Ground Theatre’s current show, David Schulner’s An Infinite Ache, appears to be a conventional love and marriage story. A man and woman meet, fall in love, and get hitched – nothing unusual. But the script is so intricately crafted that we see snapshots of the couple as they progress through a partnership of more than five decades and take on sex, marriage, children, and death – in a mere hour and fifteen minutes. The fast-paced, natural dialogue travels seamlessly through the years, with no specific scene divisions. Time simply progresses.
