Review: Interrobang Theatre Presents Still at Athenaeum Theatre (October 1, 2016)

Still is the story of Constantinople, a stillborn boy searching for his mother. Everything is new to him and amazing. A very tall man plays the role of the infant which makes for some very funny moments. He meets Delores, a dominatrix struggling to make meaning of her own losses, who agrees to help him find his mother. But when Delores does find his mother, she can’t bring herself to say she met her dead son. Morgan is the midwife who delivered the stillborn. She craves punishment and seeks it from Delores. She’s never been to a dominatrix before which leads to a humorous encounter.

The sound design for this play is very interesting and draws the audience in. Also, the costumes are very well done,  especially for the dominatrix. The play runs 90 minutes without an intermission. The production successfully tells a poignant story about love and loss, and about finding human connection in unexpected places.
