Weekly Press: SILVERHILL is "A Gem Of A Play... Fresh... Engaging... Smart"

Check out these excerpts from John Dowlin’s review of SILVERHILL from this week's issue of Weekly Press:

In 1848, John Humphrey Noyes founded the Oneida settlement in upstate New York... This was also the year Marx and Engels published the Communist Manifesto. Three years later, Herman Melville would publish Moby Dick, perhaps the epic poem of capitalism. Heady times. ... vividly portrayed in Thomas Gibbons' well-grafted new play, SILVERHILL, produced by InterAct... Director Seth Rozin has carefully coached seven talented, accomplished actors to present a fresh look at mid-19th century communal America. ... SILVERHILL is a gem of a play, engaging us in a political/Biblical debate while relieving with Shaker songs and incidental music. It's a smart course on how our troubled, often confused nation has grown and continues to grow. To borrow and extend a thought from William Penn... 'Let us now see what a little history can do.'
