REGRETS OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: March 27, 2012
Synopsis: Caleb Farley is the youngest man ever to show up at Mrs. Duke's cabins (Tony Award winner Adriane Lenox), a ramshackle retreat in the Nevada desert and one of the few places men can go to secure a quick divorce in 1950s America. Caleb claims he fled his Hollywood home for the same reason as the other men in camp - to shed the lives and wives they've known, and loved, to begin anew. But in an era of heightened fears and political distrust, accusations that Caleb is hiding more than just a broken heart test each man's loyalty - to country and to one another. This fascinating new drama is an uncommon tale of friendship, loss and finding the courage of one's convictions.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"“Regrets,” a new play by the British writer Matt Charman, is set in a humble motel near Reno, Nev., in 1954. It’s a dusty, depressing way station for men whose marriages have hit the skids. Here they must park themselves for the requisite six weeks to earn official residency in the state of Nevada, which has always made it easy to untie the bonds of matrimony."
"The new drama “Regrets,” set in 1954 Nevada, looks quite nice: Small wood cabins are huddled onstage, with the desert sky in the back and a cooking fire in the center. You can almost smell the mesquite."
"Getting a divorce was hell back in the 1950s, an era in American history that Brit scribe Matt Charman sharply invokes in "Regrets" with a sympathetic treatment of a bunch of guys camped at a rustic motel in the Nevada desert, waiting out the state's six-week residence requirement. Although the men in this forlorn group run to type, one of them has a secret that's dangerous enough to be interesting. But the scribe cuts off analysis and discussion too soon after the Big Reveal, and the political issues he raises lose more of their impact in this sluggish production."
"It hasn’t been a winning season for Manhattan Theatre Club Off-Broadway. First up was Zoe Kazan’s promising but muddled family melodrama “We Live Here.” Next came poor David Hyde Pierce flailing about in Molly Smith Metzler’s synthetic comedy “Close Up Space.” Now we have Matt Charman’s strenuously gerrymandered drama-with-a-big-secret, “Regrets.” All I can say is, if you go, you’ll have a few."
