I AM A TREE OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: May 31, 2012
Synopsis: Thirty-something year old Claire discovers she has family members she never knew existed. Desperate to find out about the mother she barely knew, she embarks on an odyssey to find these relatives, hoping they will give her the answers she needs. But what she ends up finding is three wildly eccentric aunts, who have three very different perspectives on what her mother was like, what actually happened to her and why.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Playwrights, be fearless about what you put into your plays. But then be ruthless about what you cut out. Even great lines can be lost in an ocean of words. Need proof? See “I Am a Tree,” a solo play written and performed by Dulcy Rogers. Sprinkled through are several nice observations and clever moments. To get to them, however, you’ll have to sit through action-stopping descriptions and asides. "
"Tv viewers groaned when Barbara Walters asked Katharine Hepburn what kind of a tree she’d be — a sign Dulcy Rogers should have heeded. Her one-woman play begins and ends with the writer/performer striking a dramatic, tree-like pose meant to suggest emotional liberation, but instead makes you think longingly of an ax.
"Dulcy Rogers is a skillful actor and a graceful wordsmith, and both qualities are nicely on display in “I Am a Tree,” the solo show that she has written and enacts in a highly appealing performance. The story she spins in her play, however, is never fully satisfying. It’s subtitled “an unstable new comedy,” and while never tedious, it has the cobbled-together tone of short fiction in an old-time women’s magazine."
"Dulcy Rogers is an engaging and endearing actress who brings a combination of warmth and passion to her new solo piece, I Am a Tree, now at Theatre at St. Clement's. Rogers plays a 37-year-old woman named Claire, who is at a crossroads in her life. Unable to communicate with her father, who is both geographically and emotionally remote, she turns to her three aunts, none of whom she has seen in more than 30 years, to learn the secret of her mother's descent into madness. "
"Solo shows always seem intensely personal, even when the actor is portraying a historical figure, or taking on multiple roles. And so one imagines it might be with Dulcy Rogers’ I Am a Tree. Despite some excellent insightful and funny scenes, in the end this seems less like a personal story than a contrived theatrical piece."
