Verdigris

 

VerdigirsPosterWeb“CRITIC’S PICK — Verdigris is perhaps the best production I have ever seen at Theatre West. Great writing, great direction and superb acting make it a hands down hit!” 
Grigware Reviews
“The funny & poignant play well directed by Mark W. Travis  takes place in small town Edgar, Oklahoma, in 1972 and was first mounted over 30 years ago to great reviews.  I think this rebooted version is destined to great acclaim also… Fine work from an excellent cast.”

“An award worthy, CAPTIVATING and beautifully staged production, we were entranced from start to finish! A wonderfully involving, and touching production!”

~ The Tolucan Times

“That right there is the true beauty of this production. It doesn’t feel like a play. It feels like an interaction with people that you might know in real life. So I tip my hat to you. You moved me enough to draw me out of retirement.”

~ Kat Michels

“There is magic happening at Theatre West with Verdigris, I cannot urge you enough to go and see this play, it is truly fantastic in every way it is possible for a play to be!”

ABOUT VERDIGRIS

A can’t-do life, but a can-do lifestyle. Margaret Fielding’s entire adult life has been spent in a wheelchair. She can barely move a muscle. But that doesn’t stop her from throwing the lives of a half-dozen people into the air and twirling them like saucers in a circus act. “Verdigris” can be defined as corrosion. But it also glows in beauty.

“JIM BEAVERS VERDIGRIS IS A TRULY AMAZINGLY WELL WRITTEN PIECE OF THEATRE. THEATRE WEST AND DIRECTOR MARK W. TRAVIS GATHERED SOME OF THE FINEST TALENT AROUND AND GAVE THIS PLAY A REAL HONEST AND PASSIONATE HEART. IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SO MANY EMOTIONS – INCLUDING LOTS OF HUMOR – AND IT WILL BE SOMETHING YOU WILL REMEMBER – AND TALK ABOUT – LONG AFTER YOU LEAVE THE THEATRE.”

IT’S BEEN SAID THAT IF TENNESSEE WILLIAMS HAD BEEN WRITING ABOUT THE WEST, HE MIGHT HAVE COME UP WITH VERDIGRIS. I WOULD HAVE TO AGREE. VERDIGRIS IS AS CLOSE AS A MODERN WRITER MIGHT COME TO THE KIND OF POETIC EMOTIONAL MINE FIELD WILLIAMS SO THOROUGHLY WADED AND HURDLED IN HIS WORKS.  WRITER/ACTOR JIM BEAVER EXQUISITELY SQUEEZES THE HEART OF IT, FOR SURE.”
