The Big Funk

By John Patrick Shanely

Presented by Rodez Productions at Red Tape Space, Chicago

"The earnest projection of the actors create a blithe atmosphere that becomes more emotional as the meaning unfolds. The discomfort and negative energy are on display [...] And the director, Rani Blair-O’Brien, has done a great job corralling these performances and gets the upper register from the meta-psychic storage of each actor." - Patrick McDonald
