ReActors Ann Russell and Teri FitzGerald take to the stage this July in 'Risk Everything" with Whirligig Theatre Company - Directed by Liam Halligan. Check out the reviews below.
"At the time of life when most people are thinking of a peaceful retirement, Carol (Ann Russell), an incorrigible risk talker, is determined to outwit a homicidal thug out of a sizable sum of money.
To succeed in this plan, she must ensnare her daughter Denise (Teri FitzGerald), son-in law RJ and new boyfriend Michael into her scheme, placing all of them in mortal danger.
George F. Walker’s thriller-cum-dysfunctional-family drama, explores how this group of loveable losers struggle under extreme emotional and physical distress."
nomoreworkhorse.com: "This play has four cast members, but there is a strong focus on the two women. There is an impressive dynamic between the two, with Teri Fitzgerald particularly catching the eye, as a young woman trying to put her life back on the tracks after some wild years.”
theredcurtainreview.com: “…an excellent performance from Ann Russell. Teri FitzGerald is strong. In a word: Brilliant."
