TOO MUCH SUN
A WONDERFUL PRODUCTION that is a representative example of this playwright’s quirky offbeat work. It also helps seeing the hilarity in the lousy hand life sometimes deals out. Highly recommended!
~Eric A Gordon. Pure Native Review
Nicky Silver’s 2014 play, Too Much Sun, is not a predictable, linear progression of action with characters moving from point A to point B and so on, but is rather like a Jackson Pollack painting, an emotional splatter that has more structure than might be readily perceived.

A FINE PEICE OF WORK... Silver forges an involving and emotionally expansive world in the zone where comedy and drama meet. And he astutely explores the possibilities marriage might hold for characters passing their middle years... Director Bart DeLorenzo expertly calibrates the changing emotional tones that give the play its resonance and impact.
THE ACTORS ARE TERRIFIC, particularly Cary, whose Audrey is so narcissistic and self-involved we should detest her rather than root for her every step of the way as we do. If Audrey’s semi-redemption seems a bit unlikely, it’s through no fault of Cary, who hard-sells her character like a wily hawker at a street bazaar. -- F. Kathleen Foley, LA Times
SUBSTANCE , HUMOR AND HEART.... The cast is formidable... the magnificent Diane Cary and soulful Bailey Edwards... Bart Delorenzo’s talented touch boosts every scene... A must see! ---- Ingrid Wilmot, Will Call

SPLASH SELECTION…. well written, beautifully acted, and has just the right amount of pain and pleasure, laughs and tears.” — Elaine Mura, LA Splash
