Stranger Kindness is a misinterpretation of the American classic A Streetcar Named Desire. Using the intentions and emotions of the original script, the piece alternates between a play and a video being live filmed for the audience. Incorporating language from canonical American plays, modernist existentialist writers, and Marxist feminism, Stranger Kindness is much more interesting than it sounds like it will be.
“Best Play – 2017” ~ Baltimore City Paper
“Acme offers up probably the most radical and punk rock art thing happening in the city right now. And yet, it’s faithful to the Williams play in the ways that matter—namely, mood, message, and atmosphere.”
~ The Baltimore City Paper
“The whole experience is uncanny, difficult, and exhilarating.”
~ Abraham Burickson, Odyssey Works
