Beautiful Ending, Shaky Beginning

The challenge Gotanda poses in Pool of Wonders: Undertow of the Soul is sharp and his ending beautiful, both the writing and the pared down lavishness of Michael Socrates Maron’s staging; nonetheless, the beginning of the play is uncertain both in tone and content. Despite those problems both play and production are fascinating attempts at a new, more mysterious American theater.

‘Pool of Wonders: Undertow of the Soul’ runs through September 23 at the Thousand Oaks Baptist Church in Berkeley. Click her for the Full Review and Tickets and Information.
