Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“British acting standouts Jared Harris (Fringe) and Sophie Winkleman, along with Irish newcomer Siobhán Hewlett, are off to the races with Scottish playwright Rona Munro’s play. Her crackling, insightful dialogue illuminates Donny’s former wife and current girlfriend—both of whom can’t help but feel that Donny has become an entirely new person. Donny’s Brain is a special production of the LA Theatre Works Relativity Series, which encourages science-themed plays, but it’s the human voices inside and outside Donny’s head that make this story special. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
