CRITICAL RESPONSE TO FIN & EUBA

 

"This poignant and sneakily powerful play offers an unsettlingly pragmatic look at the fragility of dreams and the desolation of a hard-scrabble life lived without them. And, lest that sounds too high-falutin', Fin and Euba are cleanly drawn characters whose responses to their lives and to each other will utterly break your heart. "  - Paul Donnelly

"One of the warmest, most sincere, and unapologetically “Southern” plays that I have ever seen. The two women in this particular one-act, titled Fin & Euba, remind me so much of myself that my eyes well up. Both Fin and Euba are preoccupied with escaping their current situation; they feel stuck working factory jobs all the while dreaming of something bigger. They are Southern, yes, and the regional idioms they use garner quite a few audience laughs, but they are not defined one-dimensionally by where they’re from. That is, their culture does not overshadow their character." - Meghan McLeroy, "The South the Theatre Forgot," HOWLROUND. Read full article.

Fin and Euba (One-Act Play for Two Women) inhabit a suffocating world. Big dreams, small town prospects. As is their ritual, they sit out on the porch this late Autumn night, watching the cars go by... drinking, bitching, and planning their escape.
