****HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**** The creative folks at The New Colony are once again exploring a subject matter that they seem to be particularly drawn to — the world of video gaming. In 2016, this very same company presented the world premiere of “Merge,” which dealt with the people involved in the creation of and travails involved in incorporating what ended up becoming the Atari company in the late 1970’s, and its eventual downfall. Their latest world premiere (New Colony’s 31st) is “Fun Harmless Warmachine,” written by the new Co-Artistic Director Fin Coe, which is a much more polished and decidedly darker and rewarding work. 4 BIG SPOTLIGHTS
