Latest review: The Wonder: A Woman Keeps a Secret


I reviewed this charming show right before I flew out to CO. I enjoyed it very much. Talented cast, clever play, good time.

The Wonder: A Woman Keeps a Secret is a 300 year-old farce by Susanna Centlivre. Despite its age, it still delights, mostly due to Centlivre boldly placing the bulk of the action in the hands of two headstrong women – a rarity in 18th century playwriting.

And with a mostly able cast to deliver the rapid-fire, tongue-twisting text, this rarely performed classic is receiving a charming, intimate staging by the Point of Contention Theatre Company at the BoHo Theatre in Rogers Park.
