Rae Mary and Fred Harris Jr. in Driving Miss DaisyPrior to Friday night, my only experience with Driving Miss Daisy was with the remarkable film version starring the incomparable Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. Although its tenderness sticks with me, for some reason I don’t recall Alfred Uhry's script being terribly funny. And with the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s production of this material, I'm now wondering why I don’t remember the humor, considering how loud and often I laughed during director Donna Weeks' presentation.

2015 Playwrights Festival: One-ActsNew Ground Theatre's 2015 Playwrights Festival: One-Acts was, for me, a mixture of “Ha ha ha!” and “What the hell?!” I either laughed heartily during the five debuting works or sat confused as to the points their playwrights tried to make.

Pamela Crouch-Zayner, Chris Zayner, Lisa Kahn, and Don Faust in Dinner with FriendsThe Playcrafters Barn Theatre's latest production, Dinner with Friends, explores the impact of a marriage-ending extramarital affair on not only the couple involved, but also their best friends. And while what results can be correctly guessed before the finale, playwright Donald Margulies manages to incorporate some unexpected paths along the way, particularly in the evolving responses of the couple's pals. While I did find my mind wandering during Friday's performance due to a lack of interest in some of the longer-winded conversations, I still enjoyed the overall presentation for being thought-provoking regarding relationships, and for offering some great laughs, too.

Homeward Bound: "The Whipping Man," at the Village Theatre through March 30

The Whipping ManIf I were to detail the plot of playwright Matthew Lopez’s The Whipping Man, it would sound like the outline of a soap opera, given that the twists seem so melodramatically shocking. However, the story doesn’t play out that way, both because Lopez handles the revelations so well, and because New Ground Theatre presents this story of a Confederate soldier and two of his family’s freed slaves with respect and sincerity.
