I went to see my former student Margy Love in “The Black Book” by Phil Blechman, playing at The Sargent Theater. She was terrific, and the voice/speech/text work was excellent!
“The Black Book” is a new play about an afflicted college student, Collin Archer, who secretly leaves a veiled suicide note in the form of a poem on the desk of his first year professor, Arthur Chase. Compelled to rescue his student, Arthur delves into Collin’s past, uncovering the secrets disguised in his poem in an attempt to figure out his next move. The Black Book is a high velocity mystery thriller exploring a mind wavering between clarity and collapse. So begins an intense psychological chess match, a mission to understand, and Arthur only has 99 minutes!
