REVIEWS

In The Bad and the Better, surprise is a highly unstable element. Derek Ahonen’s outlandishly twisty thriller is the latest joint—an elbow, delivered straight to the ribs—from the Amoralists, a troupe that has broken out in the past three years on the strength of its idiosyncratic voice (often deployed at full volume).

Although slightly unwieldy, particularly in the second act, Ahonen's play is one of a few with a perceptive take on current events that doesn't come across as overtly political or agenda pushing. 

- Suzy Evans, Backstage
CONTINUE READING
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing The Bad and The Better, and it left me feeling very happy that there are still aspects of the "detective play" that have not yet been fully tapped. This piece is creative, smart, funny, and gritty simultaneously and it is one that I will be thinking about for a long time.
