Baggage

By Judith Sandiford
Published July 20, 2009

Sara Weber has written a thoughtful, well-crafted play, and does a fine job of acting in it as well, along with equally fine Amalie Ritskes.

The story: two women friends (cousins), at two separate crossroads in their lives, use a European grand tour (too many places in too few days) as the jolt they need to figure out what really matters to them. The writing has nice leaps and unexpected shifts.

There's fun to be had. Director Ray Louter moves the staging along briskly and simply. I look forward to seeing more from this team.
