OFF BROADWAY REVIEW
A harrowing drama by newcomer playwright Stefanie Zadravec, "Honey Brown Eyes" observes a few fleeting acts of kindness amid the horrors of the Bosnian conflict that saw so many thousands of civilians killed during the 1990s.
Winner of the Helen Hayes Award for best new play staged in Washington D.C. in 2009, "Honey Brown Eyes" made its New York debut on Sunday at the Clurman space on Theatre Row under the auspices of the Working Theater.
Now in its 25th year, this off-Broadway company produces thoughtful plays for and about working people. Appropriately, the stories that Zadravec entwines in her fictional drama regards working class individuals whose lives fatefully cross during the Bosnian nightmare in 1992.
