Tyler Henning and Ashley Hoskins in Barely HeirsThe Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s Barely Heirs is a bit of an enigma, because even though it's problematic in plot and presentation, this farce delivers some big laughs. Despite taking issue with several elements of Friday’s performance, I must also admit that I, along with the rest of the audience, not only laughed but guffawed, repeatedly, throughout the comedy. This play is deeply flawed, but also exceedingly funny.

Bill Peiffer, Robert Wamer, and Steve Marriott in Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa ClausThe kids cast in the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus are the best parts of the production, with Lena Slininger’s Virginia and the rest of the children lending the proceedings a bright innocence – even when some youths are bullying Virginia about her worn-out shoes – that provides a welcome warmth to the holiday tale. Unfortunately, the kids aren’t of central importance in this play that includes one of their names in the title.

Fiancé What? : "Marrying Terry," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through September 21

Eric Landuyt, Jamie Bauschka, Melissa Hummel, Terri Nelson, Shawn Sutton, David Lane, and Victor Angelo in Marrying TerryReading through the program for the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s Marrying Terry filled me with eager anticipation for Friday’s performance, as the cast is mostly composed of newcomers to either the Playcrafters stage or any stage. While it’s fun to see familiar actors in different roles, it can be even more exciting to see fresh faces take to the theatre, and with this production, the new talents are a blend of fine actors and those who, with time, could become fine ones, too.

Georgians on My Mind: "Second Samuel," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through July 20

Andy Curtiss in Second SamuelThere are few things in today’s desensitized society that I think will shock audiences. But the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s Second Samuel, by author Pamela Parker, manages to shock in its secret that's almost carried to the grave by Miss Gertrude, a deceased woman who is never seen on stage. That secret creates the play’s tension, and ultimately leading to a lesson in tolerance that avoids being too preachy, and that applies to the acceptance of anyone’s differences.
