*Five NC theater critics' favorite shows & "State of Theater" 2017 round table discussion on WHUP radio's "Lights Up" (start at 11:17, 14:43): https://whupfm.org/episode/lights-up-122017-permanent-archive/*

 

*Outstanding Production & Outstanding Ensemble Performance for Orlando in Triangle Arts & Entertainment's "Best of 2017" List*

 

*Orlando was one of Indy Week’s Top Ten Plays of 2017*

 

 

"It takes a mere eighty minutes to gain these and other insights in the Delta Boys' triumphant production of Sarah Ruhl's stage adaptation of Orlando at Manbites Dog Theater. In that time, five self-directed actors sketch striking stage tableaux as they deftly skate across a half-millennium-long history of the human heart.... A rewarding production filled with the joy of storytelling.... At the last, Orlando remains confident in her search for understanding. An equally confident production puts that quest on the strongest ground, and earns our highest recommendation."

-Byron Woods, "A superlative adaptation of Virginia Woolf's Orlando packs centuries of insight into a fleet eighty minutes," Indy Week

 

"The cast, who is onstage throughout the entire play, are energetic and well-meshed, weaving in and out of each other’s lives through the centuries, often becoming another gender (as does Orlando). Their ability to hook into each other’s lines, as well as their physical ability to choreograph the often abstract tableaux in the performance, is excellent; and together, they build an interesting and enjoyable perspective." -Dawn Reno Langley, Triangle Arts & Entertainment

One of the Indy Week performing arts critic's nine favorite shows of 2015: "A gifted quintet played a compelling game of human pinball as Caryl Churchill's characters got the news (or didn't) in 65 relationships, ranging from snarky lovers to torturer and victim."       -Byron Woods

"In conventional scripts, playwrights provide the names and identities of the characters, or at least the locations and times of events. In Love and Information, all Caryl Churchill provides are brief titles for a series of seemingly disconnected scenes, followed by anonymous lines of dialogue. In a five-star production last January, part of the Delta Boys' achievement was how imaginatively a quintet of self-directed actors filled in the blanks, sharply defining individual characters in specific situations and conveying transitions in more than 60 different relationships. This kinetic, non-stop show confronts us with what actor Skylar Gudasz called 'the constant stimulation and constant disconnect' of a culture in which the values we assign to other and ourselves can be contingent upon--and threatened by-- the next Facebook status post."       -Byron Woods, Indy Week
