Crashbox Scores with its Intimate but Powerful Production of The Liddy Plays



The subjectivity of sanity and the endurance of memory, and the ways in which both shape selfhood, are examined in Brooke Berman's The Liddy Plays. Last night, I had the pleasure of watching Crashbox Theater Company's production of The Liddy Plays at Manhattan's Access Theater. The 90-minute production was well-paced, finely acted, and an overall totally enjoyable show.

The Liddy Plays is a collection of four plays about the often-tempestuous Liddy and her calmness-obsessed brother Em, as they deal with the ripple effects of their emotionally unstable Mother's suicide. Crashbox's production is a treat to watch, filled with perfectly sparse movement and song and raw performances from the cast. The show explores that often fine line in mental health between subtly giving in and loudly breaking down. The lead actress Keilly McQuaill especially shines in her fantastic portrayal of Liddy's attempt at balancing popular notions of sensibility with her desire to be true to her personal emotionality.
