In the Bleak Midwinter

THE DRAMA. THE PASSION. THE INTRIGUEā€¦ AND REHEARSALS HAVEN’T EVEN STARTED.

inthebleakmidwinterYoung stage director Joe Harper (Michael Maloney) attempts to produce ā€Hamletā€ in a church on the English countryside, but there is no shortage of problems. This is a comedy/drama both spoofing and celebrating the place where dreams come alive ā€“ the theater. Weā€™re thrown into a motley mix of rehearsals and passionate quarrels; results are more fun than moving. The cast enthusiastically breathes life into these caricatures; there is a fighting spirit burning inside the stage players, lending color to a movie that otherwise runs the risk of becoming too black and whiteā€¦
