Aneisa Hicks and Amber Snyder

Lynn Sorrentino

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 20 2016
Price: $10-$25
This Pride Films and Plays production, at Edgewater’s cozy Rivendell Theatre, is a tender and gratifying theatrical experience. A traditional drawing-room play set in Gay 90s New York, Nancy Nyman and Heather McNama’s new work tells the story of a successful, civic-minded African-American couple, Jack (Tiffany Mitchenor) and Hannah (Aneisa Hicks), who offered one another, in Hannah’s words, “a love that was true, and a lie behind which to hide it.” When their Irish-Catholic scullery maid (an astonishing Amber Snyder) finds out their secret one New Year’s Eve, snooping around the delicately furnished apartment after hours, the ensuing clash between unconditional love and orthodox prudence is, in terms of theater history, deeply conventional—and I mean that in the best possible way. Diana Raiselis directs. —Max Maller
