THIS STORM IS WHAT WE CALL PROGRESS
by Jason Grote
Rorschach Theatre 2008
“The world premiere of Jason Grote’s THIS STORM IS WHAT WE CALL PROGRESS is both mind-blowing and a bit mind-numbing, but as modeling clay for a troupe that likes to get its mitts on provocative, idea-crammed and still-evolving theater, it’s primo material.”
– Washington Post
"THIS STORM IS WHAT WE CALL PROGRESS is right in Rorschach’s wheelhouse: a marriage of magic and the mundane, where wine and sacred blood soak a Metro card (which will be used to cure a hip ailment) and where a nameless woman with silver skin (Rena Cherry Brown) seeks out a young man, either to father the Messiah or in order to eat him. It is a beautifully written, flawlessly executed piece of work.”
– DC Theatre Scene
"...a sexy and meditative staging"
