A Fool’s Game, Yet Another Show About The Life In The Theatre

A Fool’s Game, Yet Another Show About The Life In The Theatre

Much like David Mamet’s Play A Life In The Theatre, Timothy Patrick Walsh’s new play A Fool’s Game focuses on the relationship between two actors. Andrew Thompson Stevenson the Third (Walsh), an aging stage veteran, who was once considered the next biggest star in theatre, has turned to alcohol to ease the life he has chose to lead. Jackal (Stepfon Thompson) a rap star with a following, seeks to make a deceased friend proud. As the play goes on their relationship begins to change, as Jackal teaches Andrew Thompson Stevenson the Third, to be true to himself, Andrew Thompson Stevenson the Third, teaches this phenom how to act.

In casting himself as the lead role, Mr. Walsh leads us to compare him to Patrick Stewart, Joe Mantegna, Ellis Rabb and F. Murray Abraham. Not an easy task. Though he holds his own, these are well-established highly trained Shakespearean actors.

The standout here is Stepfon Thompson, who lights up the stage. His performance is layered and interesting.

Kenthedo Robinson does a wonderful job directing and keeping this show at a fast pace.

Mr. Walsh is a playwright who has a future; I just don’t think this show does. The only reason Mamet’s play ran was there was always a star attached and even then it was for limited runs, which barely sold. Theatre life is rarely interesting enough to actors, let alone those not involved. There are some interesting twists and the dialogue flows, and community theatre’s with aging actors will definitely be it’s audience. I look forward to what Mr. Walsh does next.
