A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
I wish a more of the type of detail from this story was evident in the show.
I too wish more of the type of detail from this story was evident in the show. Wait..... What????
The likely intended sentiment above was that the play is really a VERY loosely organized conceptual piece that drops snippets of history amongst what amounts to mostly conceptual (and not in an overly intellectualized way) performance art.I personally enjoyed the play, but I heard more than one person utter that it was "the worst play I've ever seen"...it's unusually staged and occasionally interesting, but more for its style and location than for any actual story that is being told (or not told). It is memorably staged, but requires a lot of patience from its audience, along with a willingness to walk around in the cavernous space in near-darkness while taking in the musty smells and straining to hear the badly miked performers through the eching chamber.Hmmm, come to think of it, this may have been part of the purpose, to replicate the challenges that were part of living in the real Swampoodle...Definitely experimental - not for the Kennedy Center crowd!
