I really enjoyed this complex new 2-hander well written and directed by Michael Quinn at The Zephyr Theatre on Melrose. The play stars two talented appealing and charismatic young thesps -Hadley Durkee as poet Mary and Joseph Basquill as Harold...aka Harry a computer science professional. These two talented performers have a unique, likable and sincere chemistry worth watching as their complex friendship / relationship, non-relationship unfolds.
There's lots of humor in "The Ballad of Mary & Harry" as I nicknamed it and lots of resonating sadness too.
Both characters are deeply moving works in progress and Ms. Durkee & Mr. Basquill are really great performers.
The winning play explores well meaning flawed college aged characters trying to make their way in the world.
I think each act could be a little shorter but I commend the two leads on their acting chops in this unique and:original new play definitely worth seeing and well produced by Zoe Brown. Thank you Sandra Kuker PR! HH
