The Theatre Reader calls Heretic “Stunning”!

12 Apr

Another great review, this time from The Theatre Reader:

A stunning one-woman show that picks your brain.  …  Heretic, directed by Matt Bernard, is a 50-minute one-woman show, tastefully scripted with feminine insight. Sarah Thorpe skillfully blends history with artistic interpretation in her portrayal of the emotionally gritty teenage Joan of Arc.  …  The script lends credence to broader questions of faith and patience in the human retelling of a brave 19-year-old girl who died for her country.   …  Audience members are captivated.

Don’t miss our final two performances! Today at 2pm and 8pm. Tickets available here, or in person at the venue.

First Review! Heretic is ‘Bold’, ‘Thoughtful’, ‘Compelling’

9 Apr

The first review for Heretic is up! Veteran critic and prolific theatre-goer, Lynn Slotkin of the Slotkinletter.com, had this to say about the show:

Bravo to creator/actor Sarah Thorpe for setting herself the challenge.  …  Thorpe’s playing of Joan is compelling.  …  An agile performance  …  Thorpe is ably guided by director Matt Bernard who has a delicate but sure hand.  …  Scenographer, Claire Hill does wonders with a tight design budget. She has created the world of France for Joan.  …  This gritty, thoughtful, well done production is one of the many reasons I love indie theatre, and certainly the work of the feisty Soup Can Theatre Company adds to that feeling. Heretic is well worth a visit during this very short run.
