Last week I went to the first production by Reno Artists’ Theater. Performing at The Laughing Owl Production Theater they offered a dark comedy entitled “A Devil Inside” written by David Lindsay-Abaire.
A fix-it man, laundry owner and her son, a Russian Literature professor, a giddy student, and a woman with a past searching for what was lost, find themselves in a twisted and tangled interconnecting story of love, betrayal, murder, revenge and dismemberment. The twists and turns come fast as the characters explore the darkness that draws them into each other’s lives. There certainly are no dull moments in this performance.
I found myself following along with the characters, but not truly seeing any one character drawing me into their story. Very funny and at times silly, but overall not as dark as the plot would suggest this is a funny and entertaining play, well-acted and directed, indeed, a great start for this new theater group of talented actors and supporting crew.
Playing through September 13th at The Laughing Owl Theater on Wells Avenue, this is a great escape from reality and a wild ride — well worth seeing.
