What the audience has emailed us about LET GO:
"a journey where I’m confused, moved, laughing, pushed to rethink all my assumptions"; "lots of surprises, lots of interesting nods to Beckett and Albee, and then a turnaround... a perception shift worthy of Martin McDonough";  "the show sure struck home - not the practical-joke parts but the aging and frailty (mental/physical) parts for sure"; "little did I know as a young dumb thing watching No Theater plays that No would still be showing me my life 40 years later"; "Discomforting…weirdly familiar….strange, funny….questions continue!";  "The play was fabulous.  I need to see it again."

NO THEATER begins its 50th year of presenting new works for the stage locally and around the world with performances of its most recent production, LET GO, performed by No Theater veterans Roy Faudree and Jane Karakula. who appeared in No Theater's 2020 production of Martin McDonagh's A SKULL IN CONNEMARA just before the COVID pandemic.
