Review: 'Forget About Me' On Ossining Stage Unforgettable

  • Comments (1)

OSSINING, N.Y. -- Bob Zaslow, a playwright and teacher who is a member of the Westchester Collaborative Theater writes a review of the play 'Forget About Me.'

I walked up the narrow staircase of the Steamer Company Firehouse Theatre in Ossining to the home of the Westchester Collaborative Theatre on Saturday, April 12. I sat down in the first row and within five minutes, was lost in a world created by local playwright and actor, Ward James, director Jessica Irons and an amazingly talented ensemble cast.

The story, which takes place on Manhattan’s East Side in late 1943, revolves around Nancy, a blind young woman (played with uncanny sensitivity by Aisling Mulhern) who is faced with a dilemma when she finds out she is pregnant by a man whom she loves but hasn’t heard from in more than a month.

Everyone in the audience felt her growing inner turmoil, like the baby growing in her womb, as a tough-loving midwife (a tour de force by Ann Gulian) offers her different options to end her pregnancy.

Meanwhile, her mother and father (the wondrous Julie Griffin and Ron Schnittker), and little sister (delightful Ossining High School student Somari Davis), only know that their Nancy looks pale and needs to stop gallivanting around so late with men like that horn player, Willie (the charismatic Femi Alao).

The level of writing is so high, the story so touching and the performances so riveting that it would be a shame if only a handful of people saw this work.

There will be six more performances on Friday, April 18, at 8 p.m.; Saturday, April 19, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and the following Friday and Saturday at the same times. 

All tickets are $20; $15 for seniors and students. Order directly through the website www.wctheater.org.

The address is 117 Main St., Ossining, second floor.
