Chicago Theater Beat’s Katy Walsh calls Broken Fences a “multi-layered look at a neighborhood’s footprint in the past, present and future.
Playwright Steven Simoncic’s tale of gentrification is mind-broadening. It starts out familiar. A white couple moves next door to a black couple. After that introduction, Simoncic spins us around to see these homes from every possible angle. The evolving story is riveting. His characters are authentic. His dialogue is natural. The banter is over the fence ‘getting to know you’ awkward and casual. There is plenty of humor within the drama.”
