“Joy Ride” Review from Barrington Stage 10 x 10 in Berkshire’s The Edge, Feb 23 2018 “Juliane Boyd directs Christine Foster’s amiable “Joy Ride” which showcases a mother and daughter taking off in a plane to deal with the ashes of a loved one. A clever piece with some wonderful physicality by both women, with an ending that satisfies.”
“Dragonflies” from Short and Sweet Auckland, 2016 “This tight and effective script takes us on a journey that contains more twists and turns than seem human possible in a ten minute time frame. There are patches of writing that are quite superb and the ending is exceptional.”
Approximately 10-15 minutes each play. Approximately 75 minutes in total.
