Matthew Freeman’s The Listeners boasts a swinging, Aleister Crowley naughtiness. It’s a Lynchian fable set in a bed-and-breakfast where time has a habit of looping back on itself. Imagine The Wicker Man sprinkled with Pinter: dark and silly, silly and dark.
Talk about taking a cleaver to the Cleavers. The mid-American family at the heart of Matthew Freeman’s fearless new satire, The Most Wonderful Love, is decidedly fractured when the play begins. By the time it’s over, a complete dismemberment has been performed...as savage as any slasher film.
Think Ionesco writing for The Twilight Zone.
