Sumeida's Song

Third Eye Theatre Ensemble

"Nearly all the action takes place in Asakir’s modest hut and director Rose Freeman establishes this as both a rustic home but also a claustrophobic environment, one where Asakir’s grievances have festered for years. Freeman’s open-minded approach never creates cartoon villains; instead she offers us a chance to see how decent people can destroy their own lives by harboring and nourishing unthinking hatred." - Hyde Park Herald

"...the staging made much out of little...Director Rose Freeman moved the action efficiently in the small space, avoiding dead spots in the action." - Chicago Classical Review
