Last week I was honored to attend a preview performance of Ben Eisner’s new play, “The Raft,” performed by two of my favorite local actors, Eliott Glasser and Galen Emanuele, and directed by Carolyn McCarthy, founder of Little Bird Theater. The actors’ personal stories serve them well in their performance, which is really about the meaning of life, the meaning of friendship, and the sacrifices we make for the greater good. “The Raft” is staged at the former Stamp and Coin place on Cornwall Avenue, between Holly and Magnolia streets, every Thursday through Saturday through Oct. 27. And because we are a close-knit community, and because Christopher Key’s production of “Love Letters” also plays this weekend, opening Friday and playing Fridays and Saturdays at the Firehouse Performing Arts Center in Fairhaven, I feel justified in linking to Christopher’s review of “The Raft.” Go to both plays; you won’t be disappointed. Here’s Christopher’s review, from Little Bird Theater’s blog: http://www.littlebirdtheater.com/2012/10/15/little-bird-rocks-the-raft/.
