A House with No Walls (TimeLine Theatre) - 12/18/08

TimeLine's production Thomas Gibbons' "A House with No Walls" is a thoughtful study of race and identity. I had missed his "Permanent Collection" at the Northlight a few years back, so I was eager to catch this one ("House" is part of the same trilogy as "Collection"). We've all seen this before: it's a play that preaches how the past informs us, and in turn, how we should work together to make a better future. The performances here are very good all-around, with the women fairing particularly well. Both Amber Starr Friendly and Leslie Ann Sheppard are giving luminous performances here.

Rating: **1/2 (out of *****)
