Reviewed by , January 24, 2015

There are times when the truth may be out there, but getting people to believe it is another matter. This play illustrates that truth with a moving family drama about a girl with a seemingly impossible story and the darker truths that can keep the truth buried.

In Huron County, Eloise (Lila Ciesielski), a teenage girl of a widowed family, gets home late from a party and can only explain herself with a strange story that her mother, Glenn (Martha Zimmerman), refuses to believe. Things get worse when Christine (Aimee Adler), a young reporter, manipulates Eloise …

JUDY: Stonewalled!

Reviewed by , October 24, 2014

JUDY: Stonewalled! was shown to a full house last Friday at McManus Studio at the Grand Theatre.

As soon as the audience enters the theatre, they are inside a vintage bar in New York City. There are three chandeliers on the ceiling and about six strands of Christmas lights of various sizes. The mood is warm and festive, with musicians playing at the back of the stage while the public sits down.

JUDY: Stonewalled! was originally showcased in a bar, and while McManus Studio is definitely not a watering hole, …
