Here is our first review of Poor People, part of The New York International Fringe Festival 2015.
Poor People, Theater is Easy, by Emily Cordes, August 18, 2015
“Poor People thus asks us to examine how our environments shape our decisions, and to question a society which condemns its poor and forces them to choose survival over humanity.”
“BOTTOM LINE: An empathetic portrait of love and desperation.”
“With clear-eyed compassion and unflinching emotional truth, this adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel Poor Folk captures the platonic love between two working-class characters in nineteenth-century Russia, following their efforts to survive in a cruel and indifferent world.”
