The real test for a successful performance of Frank McGuinness’s Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me comes at the end of act one and the Dancing Monkey Presents production currently on stage at Vancouver’s Renegade Studios delivers.

After spending an hour with the trio of prisoners locked away in some unknown Lebanese prison cell, we must decide if what we have seen is compelling enough for us to care about its outcome.  This production easily passes that litmus test thanks to some terrific performances and a nicely balanced presentation that places as much emphasis on the men keeping themselves sane, as it does in presenting its deeper exploration of life and death.
