A YORKSHIRE TRAGEDY

When: June 19-24, 8 p.m. 2012

The Bus Stop has air conditioning! The Bus Stop has air conditioning! Now that I’ve shared the good news, you should hustle down to its cool confines to see a cracking good production of Thomas Middleton’s A Yorkshire Tragedy. Scott Mealey is riveting as the loathsome husband who transitions from a garden-variety gambler and wife-beater to a demonically possessed homicidal maniac. Sarah Vanasse is lovely as his long-suffering, angelic wife and young Aidan Mealey stands out as an actor to watch in the role of their young son. The play is staged with Vile Passeist’s trademark pared-down style, a style that sets the focus on language and great performances. This one-act is brief and bloody, a roller coaster ride into the mind of a madman. (KW)

Price: $15/$20
