The Potting Shed by Graham Greene Open Window Theatre February 13, 2015 through March 15, 2015
I always leave Open Window Theatre thinking, “I need to do this more often.” Going to Open Window combines the fun of going out with the relaxed atmosphere of watching television. I think the only thing that would make the experience better is if they replaced their current seating with love seats and easy chairs. (Maybe they will do that. They are expanding next season). You can learn a little more about Open Window and their Mission from Gianna, here.
Saturday’s date night to see The Potting Shed was the usual reminder that I want to do this more often. One thing that made it a great date night is that, not only did it not require preparation, I actually enjoyed myself more going in cold. I’ve never taken a theater appreciation course and I’m not a theology major, and that’s okay. I just enjoyed the story and I actually was on the edge of my seat for portions of the show — just like they claimed. It was really no more effort than watching a movie. That isn’t always true in live theatre.
I did go in knowing that I love Graham Greene as a writer and that Graham Greene and Open Window always have a faith connection. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you like mysteries and drama, you’ll enjoy a night out to see the Potting Shed.
While children over 4 are always welcome at Open Window, this play is recommended for 13+. There’s nothing objectionable; it just won’t interest most children.
