The Great Gromboolian Plain

 

Review


Dinah has been institutionalized by her sister April, because she refuses to allow April to see the final book of their father's poetry for a reason she will not explain. Dinah can also travel through time, or so she says. (Still with me here?) Dinah connects with fellow patient Magellan, who has secrets of his own. But which secrets are true? Who is sane, and who is mad? These big questions drive the drama, but with the story plowing through themes of madness, family, love, sanity, art, time, and moments, there's almost too much going on at times. Don Nigro's intense script, however, is adapted by Madeline Stout with heart and vigour, and the key players—Brittany Hinse, Matt Boisvert, and Sydney Parcey—all manage to connect the emotional dots with sharp, clear-eyed empathy, in what is at times an overwrought, over-bloated script. — Miya Abe
