Limelight Actors Theater has always entertained and brought a eminence to their productions that surprised with the quality of their shows for a local company. They have really reached and touched high with their latest production .”The Outgoing Tide” by Bruce Graham. Smoothly directed by Kevin Heath who deftly also plays a central role of the grown son Jack with problems of his own while being set in the middle of his parents decisions, Bill Tindall as the cantankerous Gunner and Rosalind Farotte as his loving indecisive wife Peg – all are solid in their delivery.
The story about the subject will hit home with many. Tough and always in charge Gunner is slowly slipping in and out of dementia going deeper as the time passes. He has many lucid moments and knows what is his future holds, he makes plans to make sure his family is taken care of. Full of heartache and humor the story takes us into areas some know too well.
Skillfully written, the play by playwright Graham brings the audience into intimate moments that touches the emotional tender parts of the soul. The simple seaside set by Heath and Glynis Crabb with light and sound by Matthew Hendrickson bring in a complete performance.
“The Outgoing Tide” is extremely well done and will make you laugh and cry and remember the life that encompasses us is really, always in control.
