Review: Desperate Acts – Four local performers create unique characters in premiere one-acts

By Bob Evans for the KC Fringe Festival.

DESPERATE ACTS20160722 _MG_2722Expect to be entertained when you see Trevor Belt, Jessica Franz, Andy Penn and a relatively new face in the KC theater scene,  Casey Jane, that take on the newest works by local playwrights Inbar Kahn, Sarah Aptilon, and Victor Wishna.

“Desperate Acts” opened at the Just Off Broadway Theater to kick off the theatre’s 2016 Fringe Festival at 6 p.m. , Friday, July 23.  The show features three one-act plays that offer a lesson in acting expertise.  While the play and content is entertaining, it is the professionalism of the four actors that excel and make the pieces stand out.

Laughter fills each of the plays as the characters keep finding themselves in situations that they do not always control.  Such is life, and such is life’s journey.  Glimpse into three separate scenarios and enjoy the peek.
