Melissa Anderson Clark, Erik Finch, and Susan Perrin-Sallak in The Beauty Queen of LeenaneThe Irish accents are so good in New Ground Theatre’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane that, during Friday night’s performance, it actually took me a while to understand the actors – particularly Susan Perrin-Sallak and Melissa Anderson Clark, who play the mother and daughter at the center of the play. It took me about as long to also understand the reason playwright Martin McDonagh’s work has won so many awards, as I found the story a bit slow and dull at first, though it gradually built to a punch that I didn’t see coming despite (as I recognized in hindsight) it being clearly foreshadowed.

Jamie Em Behncke and Susan Perrin-Sallak in And They Dance Real Slow in JacksonA day after seeing it, I still can’t decide whether I like playwright Jim Leonard Jr.’s And They Dance Real Slow in Jackson, but I do know that I appreciate director Patti Flaherty’s efforts in staging this nonlinear tale for New Ground Theatre. During Friday’s performance, I struggled to follow the action, as Leonard’s script confusingly jumps back and forth in time. Thankfully, however, Flaherty’s directorial work helps create some clarity to the “when” with which we’re dealing.

Love Letters isn’t a typical stage production by the standards of contemporary acting. That’s because it’s not necessary for performers to act or even memorize A.R. Gurney’s script; they just read it. The experience is a bit like listening to a book-on-tape, with the benefit of being able to watch the readers. Some audience members for Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s current production – running weekends through January 26 – won’t enjoy the lack of stage movement, but those who know what to expect beforehand will appreciate the well-written script.
