65 Roses

 

Review


Kerosene Theatre has put forth an interesting, yet not entirely enthralling piece, with 65 Roses. The concept of two terminally ill patients bonding while in the twilight of their lives (although Lily has already passed) is a tough one to tackle. Taylor Paskar’s script centers on Jerome, who has lived his entire life with cystic fibrosis (65 roses), and is now ready to move on. Jerome, however, has some ‘unfinished business’ to deal with beforehand, and the closest person to him in the ‘world’ that he occupies, Lily, is his shepherd. The script pulls some good performances out of the actors, yet it feels rushed nearing the climax as the dialog feels abruptly cut short. Don’t hesitate to give this show a look; it’s definitely a show that some may enjoy and praise more highly than this reviewer has. Reviewed by Terris Glab.

    LOVED it. A little redundant at times- but very powerful.
