Review: First Floor Theatre Presents Deer and the Lovers at Den Theatre (November 9, 2016)

Deer and the Lovers is the story of a couple taking a weekend getaway to a cabin in the woods. Their plans are interrupted when they discover a dead deer halfway inside the house. Things get further off track when the guy’s sister shows up uninvited with her husband.

There are some laughs in this production, but not enough for it to stand as a comedy. The characters are a bit flat and the audience doesn’t really care about them.  Thus, even when developments occur, there is little reaction from the characters and the crowd as well.  It seems like the story could make for a good play, but something is off in this version.
