Kimberly Farr's and Mark Bramhall's expressive performances align with this imaginative story about the power of female relationships and the toxicity of silence. The women in this alternate history are dragons. Farr's warmth adds further nuance to fictional memoirist Alex Green as she looks back upon the impact the Mass Dragoning of 1955 had on her resilient mother, her larger-than-life Auntie Marla, and her irrepressible cousin Beatrice. Alex's frustrations with the official narrative that nothing happened manifests as she struggles within its undeniable aftermath. Dr. Henry Gantz, solidly performed by Bramhall, is unassailable in his convictions concerning dragons. His research findings and his participation in Congressional hearings are woven throughout the production. This thoughtful engagement with joy, grief, identity, and silence is sure to linger with listeners. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
