From the opening lines of this vulgar and amateurish locally produced two-hander, we’re lost. It seems there has been a Columbine-like massacre, and a psychologist, or maybe a detective, confronts the perpetrator while the school is still in lockdown.

The pair posture, drop F-bombs and exchange pretentious aphorisms like escapees from a bad Quentin Tarantino script. “Are you here because you’re a genius?” the shooter asks, “or are you a genius who happens to be here?”

Neither of the actors, Lacina Dembele or Rob Brown, is up to the challenge, even if Brown’s 45-minute script made logical sense. Sorry, but this disaster needs a much clearer setup.

— Morley Walker

 

 

From the Fringe program:

Randall has brought a loaded gun to class. Sam enters the room, places a tape recorder down and presses record.

With many twists, trips and turns, Revolver 101 examines, with words alone, the fallout of violence.

A stark and performance-heavy experience for audiences.

"The premise is brilliant." - Uptown Magazine
