Upright

 

Review


“Upright” is a mature play, one that supersedes its drab aesthetic with class and grace. It’s a slice of life take on human survival and what happens on the fringes of society. With superb acting on par with the writing, “Upright” captivates its audience immediately. A play that left one certain reviewer emotionally involved, the ideas come through clearly with ease and nuance, rather than forced obstruction. The story is sympathetic but leaves an empathetic note to anyone who’s taken the time to notice anyone that’s been dealt a bad hand. The writing is cyclical and well thought-out, hinging on the extremities of our emotions and the themes are laid bare by clever metaphors. - Ryan Hook

    Upright is a definite need to see play. This play parallels real life for folks looking to find their way, those that have been dealt a bad hand in life. It is both dramatic and full of humour that captivates your attention all the way through. The actors and direction deserve the standing ovation it was given. Great job to all those involved.
