Fred Harris Jr. in FencesFences might more aptly be titled Porches, as author August Wilson's characters spend much of the play sitting on a porch, swapping stories. Yet the script is so well written - with its raw, realistic dialogue and slice-of-life style - that it's not surprising that Wilson's drama won both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1987 and the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play just last month. And while Monday night's preview performance of the Playcrafters Barn Theatre's Fences wasn't quite at the award-worthy level, the production shouldn't be overlooked when planning a night at the theatre.

Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman’s 1938 comedy You Can’t Take It with You is so sturdy and reliably entertaining that it doesn’t take much more than a mediocre version of it to make audiences happy. The current production at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre is significantly better than mediocre – vibrantly played and almost consistently pleasurable – but what’s completely surprising is the cleverness and skill behind Vicki Deusinger’s staging of it.

After seeing the Friday night performance of Richmond Hill Barn Theatre’s latest murder mystery, Fatal Attraction, one line stood out: “The American public will accept anything except being bored.” Audiences don’t have to worry, because there’s no room for boredom during Bernard Slade’s two-and-a-half-hour thriller. The action is almost non-stop, the characters are engaging, and the technical elements give the show a nice finishing touch.
