In Part Two, “Enter The Roar,” we witness the sentencing, when her sister Theresa (nuanced Lisa Anne Porter) fiercely defends Eva’s actions. Theresa says, “Wouldn’t it be nice to find a country where it says somewhere in the bylaws that I own myself and my children and family. A place where you lot don’t have a thing to say about it.” Theresa speaks for a woman’s agency.”

“In envisioning a very liberal and very privileged Berkeley private school, Jonathan Spector’s play is so crisply defined that you might have to periodically remind yourself that you haven’t already met these characters in real life. Don (Rolf Saxon) is the conflict-averse head of school who at various executive committee meetings with parents gets a balletic spring in his step from abstract nouns, scones and markering notes on tearaway butcher paper. Longtime hyper-involved volunteer Suzanne (Lisa Anne Porter, bouncing up and down with the enthusiasm of Richard Simmons) is equally vehement in bulldozing her views over everyone else’s and then reproaching herself for doing so.”
