Out the Meadow Sure Thing

When: March 31-April 5, 8 p.m. 2009
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so invested in what happens to characters in a play, but Bev Brett’s depth of writing and remarkable performances by Natasha MacLellan, Graham Percy and Lee J. Campbell made me really wish for a happy ending to Out the Meadow. I won’t reveal if my wish came true, but let’s just say that this play—the story of the love between Lisa, a tough and tender come-from-away singer, and Archie, a charming down-on-his-luck Cape Bretoner—is equal parts comedy and tragedy. The chemistry between MacLellan and Percy makes it totally believable and understandable that this seemingly mismatched pair could forge a love that lasts through shaggy-dog stories and alcoholic rages. A spot-on performance by Campbell as the literal and figurative shit disturber Malchie is the icing on the cake. Out the Meadow only runs until Sunday, and you won’t want to miss it---Kate Watson 2pm matinees Saturday April 4 and Sunday April 5.
