DC Theatre Scene: An Irish Carol (2016)

It’s a very real cast, grounded by a moody set and lighting that’ll have you wanting to spend your Christmas Eve in Ireland. AN IRISH CAROL is a lovely spin on the traditional Christmas tale surely on its way to becoming a classic in its own right.

The Georgetowner: An Irish Carol (2016)

The play, written by company member Matthew Keenan, is now in its sixth year. Infused periodically with new cast members, it deals with a disaffected and wealthy man who’s focused too much of his life on tending to his business and not enough on being a complete human being … AN IRISH CAROL has a profane and lyrical way with words. It’s a good fit with the Keegan repertoire, which has always been an Irish stew of mostly contemporary plays… The redone theater has both a modern and an intimate feel to it. It’s welcoming, like the company itself.

Washington Blade: Six Degrees of Separation

[Director] Brnadon McCoy, a Keegan company member, has assembled an able cast and design team to bring to life Guare’s well-spun yarn. … Matthew Keenan’s spare and elegant set consists of a two-sided spinning Kandinsky and free-floating pieces of white flats that hang like disengaged puzzles pieces.

Magic Time: Six Degrees of Separation

Keegan Theatre’s stimulating production of Six Degrees of Separation is worth seeing for all the reasons my colleagues Julia Hurley and David Friscic have pointed out. The reason that knocked me out last night, however, was the fascinating performance of Ryan Swain.

MD Theatre Guide: Six Degrees of Separation

If you see nothing else for the rest of the year, make sure you make it down to Keegan Theatre for “Six Degrees of Separation.” It’s poignant absurdity or absurd poignancy will keep you thinking and laughing for days afterward.

The Washington Post: Six Degrees of Separation

Director Brandon McCoy’s artsy production (modern painting, white panels, silhouettes) is reasonably stylish, and the listening is acute as Paul beguiles the rich people he wants to belong with. Ryan Swain is a smooth talker as the elusive Paul, and the connection with Susan Marie Rhea’s anguished Ouisa sends you out of the theater properly unsettled about the separation Guare so adroitly maps.

DC Metro Theatre Arts: Six Degrees of Separation

John Guare’s play is a work that defies expectations at every turn, keeping us guessing until the very end. The Keegan Theatre’s production will make audiences laugh and break their hearts all at once, leaving us hoping that we lead better lives than the ones we see portrayed here.
