REVIEW: A Separate Peace (Steppenwolf Theatre)
Posted on March 2, 2010 by Scotty Zacher
'‘Berry’s direction of the opening and closing sequences captures the free flowing imagery that constitutes the mind’s recollections, further emphasized by Chelsea Warren’s set. An amalgamation of the primary locations of the play, it features an epic tree branch hanging over the boys’ dorm room, the branch’s presence both a reminder of youth and a foreboding harbinger of doom.’'
