John Crutchfield’s latest play, Come Thick Night, will premiere at the Asheville Fringe Arts Festival next weekend. Get ready for some “wild, funny and disturbing” theater.
Solstice is funny. It is tragic without somberness, moving without sentimentality. It’s squalid, but without a trace of self-pity. … It allows its characters to be fatally screwed up and sublime at once, and the list of playwrights who can do that is short indeed.
Local playwright/poet/actor/musician John Crutchfield has performed his one-man show, The Songs of Robert, at the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival. He brings the delightful story (told through a series of wildly-entertaining character sketches) back to Asheville. The current run ends this week.
