Drowning Sorrows, by Douglas Post
A great show
Monday, August 11, 2008
5.0
I saw Old Alabama Road Company's productions of "Drowning Sorrows" on Friday the 8th. It was a small crowd and I left the show disappointed that more people weren't there to enjoy the performance.

The set made a fantastic first impression. It was one of the best sets that I have seen in community theater in a long time making me excited to see the show that went with it.

The show was a lot of fun with characters you really cared about and a great ending that definitely leaves you talking. You have to talk about it with those who saw it with you to get their take...though no one's seems to be the same.

The acting was also fantastic. I have to say may favorite part of the show was Duncan Crawford (Eric Bragg). Eric did a great job with this character specifically during the times in which he had no lines. He brought such emotion, angst and humanity to his character, it was a pleasure to watch. Another highlight is the troubled Cole (Kevin Bolden). He is a tortured drunk who was played with such feeling. His drunk musings provided the laughs a good drama often needs but was never played for the laughs, making them that much more enjoyable. The rest of the cast was also solid and enjoyable, including the quirky Raymond (Dan Safstrom). It took me a while to appreciate his character but after learning more about it, I enjoyed him thoroughly.

Thanks for a great evening of theater!
