Another BPF Rave Review: “Following Sarah” at Fells Point Corner Theatre

Amanda Gunther of DC Metro Theatre Arts loved Following Sarah. An excerpt of her review says it all:

Espey’s work is poetic; each of the girl’s creates a strong personality on stage, coming together to form a very solid notion of what life and the pressures of prep school are like. His scenes are nothing short of creative genius, often delving into the subconscious emotions of the characters through imaginative instances; conversations shared with ghostly apparitions or anthropomorphism of a single running shoe. His work is detailed and captivating, drawing the audience into the stories of these girls’ lives. Director Anne Shoemaker does an incredible job of compartmentalizing everything that is happening on the stage.
