And so, it's the end of the year and the critics have spoken!
The folks over at the Wbur 90.9 Artery have decided that 'The Convert' at Central Square theatre was one of the best theatre productions on a local stage in 2016. Hoorah for us! I'm still so proud of our work!
Here's what they had to say about the production (to see the entire list of productions click the link below):
"The Convert," Underground Railway Theater
Megan Sandberg-Zakian helmed a riveting production of Ohio-born, Zimbabwe-raised Danai Gurira’s ambitious drama set in the 1890s in colonial Rhodesia. The three-act play is a little cumbersome and its ending is melodramatic. But Gurira’s portrayal of the simmering conflict between imposed Christianity and African tradition is fiery and complex. And the URT ensemble, anchored by an ebullient Adobuere Ebiama as the susceptible title character and a rigid Maurice Emmanuel Parent as a zealous African cleric, was terrific."
