Chief theater critic for the Chicago Tribune gives SOUTHERN GOTHIC 4 stars (out of 4)!


It’s 1961. Ashford, Georgia. Tom Collins is the drink of choice. Dean Martin’s on the radio. Everyone’s driving a Cadillac, and Suzanne Wellington is about to turn 40. Four couples gather to celebrate the big day — old college buddies who’ve known one another for decades. But even best friends keep secrets, and over the course of this evening's party, a few of those are bound to be revealed...   Content warning: please note that SOUTHERN GOTHIC portrays scenes of domestic violence.
