Taylor McKean in Amy's WishOne of the great things about living in the Quad Cities area is that there is a variety of theatre to suit almost everyone’s taste. At one end of the spectrum are theatre companies that mostly offer edgy, thought-provoking material, and at the other are venues that generally deliver more lighthearted, uncomplicated fare – plays such as the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's romantic comedy Amy’s Wish, whose opening-night performance on April 7 was a true crowd-pleaser.

Sara Laufer, Stacy Herrick, Archie Williams, and Elizabeth Buzard in Murder on the RerunThere's an early point in the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's Murder on the Run in which Sara Laufer's angel-to-be Kitty follows her explanation of the “rules” behind playwright Fred Carmichael's universe by saying to the audience, "I bet you're really confused, right?" Um, no. You just explained the story's rules very clearly and in great detail. And this exposes one of the flaws of Carmichael's writing: He makes sure absolutely nothing is left to the imagination. But at least the setup to this comedic murder mystery, though a bit convoluted, is kind of fascinating.

Josh Wielenga, A.J. Evans, and Greg Bouljon in Down to EarthA poorly written script isn’t enough to derail the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's Down to Earth. While I've never before thought “Too much exposition!” as much as I did during Thursday’s performance, I still enjoyed director Joe DePauw’s presentation of playwright Bettye Knapp’s weak “comedy fantasy” about angels coming to Earth.

Bryan Woods, Stacy McKean Herrick, Angela Rathman, Rebecca McCorkle, and Martha O'Connell in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare AbridgedThe Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is a loosely staged, sloppy mess of the comedy by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield. In presenting (almost) every single one of Shakespeare’s plays in about an hour and a half plus intermission, director Tom Morrow didn’t seem to give his five actors much in the way of blocking, leaving them to frequently mill about or form awkward clumps. Yet it’s this unrefined quality that turns out to be the production’s chief strength; it's all the more delightful for feeling less like a scripted piece than an improv show.

Trapped at Home for the Holidays: "A Nice Family Gathering," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through November 18

Christopher Tracy, Liz Blackwell, Andy Davis (standing), Gregg Neuleib, Dianna McKune, Justin Raver, and Dana Skiles in A Nice Family GatheringThree days after seeing A Nice Family Gathering at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre, I was still trying to understand the inclusion of the word “nice” in playwright Phil Olson’s title. This isn’t a feel-good, fuzzy-holiday-feelings sort of Thanksgiving play that would render the title appropriate, if clichéd. Nor is it an over-the-top, crass, outrageous comedy that makes the use of the word ironic. (Nor, for the record, is it a play about a family with the last name Nice.) I’m guessing, however, that an over-the-top, crass, outrageous comedy was Olson’s intent, given that the content of his play kind of approaches shocking, though barely.
