I can always count on StageWorks Fresno to bring something to the Valley that will move and challenge you, that makes you think and feel deeply, and addresses subjects that need to be addressed. That’s what they have done this year not only with Mothers and Sons which opened this past weekend, but also with The Christians, and The Full Monty.

This past weekend I saw The Normal Heart on stage in Fresno, presented by StageWorks Fresno. This play is one of the most moving plays I have ever seen and something I encourage everyone to go see. I knew going in that it would be good, StageWorks has never disappointed, but I had no idea just how good.

by Nancy Holley

Director Irene Morse is effusive about Lonely Planet and playwright Steven Dietz. Morse praises Dietz’s ability to depict emotions from grief to giddiness with few words. According to Morse, Dietz had been mulling the idea for a play about friends dealing with crisis when he read Ionesco’s The Chairsand realized that chairs were the perfect vehicle for describing “a horrific time in a light hearted and quirky way.”
