Jacqueline Grandt, Abby Dillon, and Mark Pracht

Jan Ellen Graves

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through July 17 2016
Price: $30-$35
The family we meet in The Seedbed has a lot of secrets. All families do. Why did 18-year-old Maggie (Abby Dillon) run away from home? Her Irish mother and father seem content enough with her choice of a fiance, the much-older Mick (Alan Bitterman). But are they really? And what is happening in their own marriage? Each of these fragile individuals' secrets eventually comes to light in this harsh and moving drama, which upends everything we seem to know about them—and that they thought they knew about each other. Skillfully acted by Redtwist Theatre's dynamic cast, The Seedbed's many reversals and crises are excruciating and profound. Mark Pracht's performance as Thomas, Maggie's proud but bewildered father, is especially moving. —Max Maller
