Julia Starr’s new play “The Long Way Around” shines in intimate, immersive production

The play is a bold and original new work with well-crafted characters and poetic, evocative language, which particularly shines during Addie’s soliloquies.

Carefully crafted moments of connection between Addie and Luce combined with humorous one-liners allow Starr to tackle weighty and complex themes with buoyancy.
