Grace Church’s first foray to Indy Fringe with Go Be Joan is a well executed and well-written drama on losing and finding oneself again. Joan has lost herself after going into deep mourning after the death of her husband. Her daughters and friends deeply love and care about her but what Joan is up to Joan.
As a crisis and grief counselor by day, I have dealt with many who have felt lost after a divorce or the death of a loved one and I’ve worked with those who just want to help a family member but feel helpless. Go be Joan does a good job of addressing that dilemma without being preachy. Go Be Joan stays positive, dealing with the issue and this strong woman without getting morose.
It’s also Nathaniel Adams first play to be produced. Nathaniel was in the audience at the Fringe opening. He teaches at Pike High School and is active in the Indiana Writer’s Center. He talked about working with the directors to hone the play to one hour and fit the fringe format. Their work paid off well.
Congrats to the playwright, cast, and directors for a well-done entry into Indy Fringe.
