Sintesi dell'editore

How well do you know your family? Your social class? Your race? Sensitive "Spoon" LeVay and his brother "Flip" see their weekend at the family home on Martha's Vineyard as a perfect opportunity to introduce their girlfriends to their upper class African American parents. Instead they stumble into a domestic powder keg that exposes secrets of prejudice, hypocrisy, and adultery. This fantastic new play comes from the pen of one of the country's most provocative new playwrights!

Loved It!

I absolutely loved it! I was listening to the audio recording while reading the book. It was an absolutely great experience. Audible needs to put more African American dramatized plays on their list!

That Which is Cut in Pieces

You know a performance is great if you find yourself thinking about it at random times days - or even months - later. I finished Lydia Diamond's "Stick Fly" (2011) about 2 months ago, and just got reminded I hadn't reviewed the Los Angeles Theater Works (LATW) Audible performance of the play.

What reminded me? A news story about two young men from a wealthy family in Snellville, Georgia who tried to kill their parents. I flashed back to the 1990's and the Menendez Brothers, who succeeded where those two young men thankfully failed. Both families are from non-majority racial groups, but I've never heard the press mention that. What's important to the Fourth Estate is the mansions, the private schools, the tennis courts . . .

"Stick Fly" explores the great social divide, and in an America that's desperately trying to be post-racial, that divide is wealth and class. I think, to a great extent the 2% - or 1% - seem to occupy some upper strata insulated from scandal and tragedy. It's not true in real life, and it's not true in "Stick Fly."

It's a neat audio play. I felt like I was in The Hamptons, secretly cheering for the naive entomologist heroine from the other 98%, who's become an unwitting specimen herself.

The title of the review is from the Greek origin of "entomology".

[If this review helped, please press YES. Thanks!]

Great for a summer road trip.

The acting in this audio play was awesome. Even if you figure out where it's going, the execution is really top notch. it's relatable, timely & poignant. I highly recommend it.

Interesting

I thought the performance was good but Taylor was too breathy and emotional - not passionate, just annoying. She calmed down at the end but in the beginning she was too much.
