Hope for Corky

 

continued

Despite its flaws, it's an admirable first effort by Godwin, one of the Rose's regular actors. You get the feeling he wrote it with actors in mind, filling it with favorite riffs and fun characters. It's also directed by a Purple Rose actor, Michelle Mountain, who keeps it moving with quick, movielike cuts. Jim Porterfield (who plays "various male characters") is the most successful at pulling a coherent theme out of the busy script. Whenever he's onstage, a kind of surreal irony descends, which seems exactly the right touch.

Hope for Corky runs every Wednesday through Sunday through May 31.    (end of article)
