  Eleemosynary at The Frontier


The Frontier
1106 W Thorndale Chicago

Sensitive and probing, ELEEMOSYNARY examines the subtle and often perilous relationship between three generations of remarkable women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie, who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie's daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect, whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea. This poignant and mature study of familial relationships highlights the human need for connection and forgiveness.

"...Maggie Kettering plays Devon with natural ease and confidence. After a glib start, Grayson Heyl as Michaela finds the soul of a lonely woman who has acquired much but loses much more. Sarah Hecht (Simone), Nic Fanti (Ethan) and Ray Andrecheck (Jos-B) tend to push the more obvious aspects of their characters. But Metzlerís script is a mix of sitcom broad strokes and subtle interactions that are sometimes at odds with each other. Keeping up with those shifts must be challenging for director Ellen Phelps and her cast. Over time, they may all slow down a bit and discover more tears beneath the one-liners."
