Bone Boy! The Theatre Play

When: May 26-June 2, 8 p.m., Sun., May 27, 2 p.m. and Sun., June 3, 2 & 8 p.m. 2012

If you like your theatre twisted and twisty (as I do), you’ll love Christian Murray’s new play Bone Boy. It’s a black comedy that stars Mike McPhee as Anthony, a young man who’s been grown from the baby tooth of a dead child. Anthony is a hyper-active innocent who sets his parents’ teeth on edge and makes them question the wisdom of their desire to resurrect their child. McPhee, a gifted physical actor, is simply brilliant in the central role. His vacant look and spaghetti-limbed movements are both charming and eerie. Brian Heighton is perfect in the role of Anthony’s father. His acting encompasses both the over-the-top wacky comedy of the play and the real depth of its tragic situation. Wes Daniels' set captures Bone Boy's off-kilter sensibility and Leigh Ann Vardy’s lighting design (complete with eclectic foot lights) truly shines. (KW)
