REVIEW OF ELEEMONSYNARY

David Treadwell, submitting to the Times Record

Eleemosynary: A World of Many Layers

Eleemosynary: 1. Charitable; of or for charity or alms; 2. A word rarely heard except at spelling bees; 3. A hauntingly human piece of writing crafted by Lee Blessing.

The set is stark in its simplicity. Three chairs. Three stands. Three glasses of water.

COASTAL JOURNAL REVIEW

By Chris Chase, Coastal Journal Staff

Legends are funny things.  Over the years they expand, the numbers inflate ("He was seven feet tall!"), events twist, until the end product might have just a smidgen of truth left in it.  They say Jim Cullen was such a man, a giant with the strength of five, his fearsome visage under a fiery head of red hair.

TIMES RECORD REVIEW

by Maryli Tiemann

It’s rare to be part of something important. 

Right now a premiere production is blossoming at The Heartwood Regional Theater in Newcastle. The Legend of Jim Cullen, written and directed by the company’s Artistic Director, Griff Braley, offers each of us a chance to witness brilliant creativity in progress.
