Backstage Review: ‘Deer’ at Restless Artist Theater

Photos and Review by Dana Nollsch

What happens when a neurotic writer and his controlling wife find themselves alone with each other for the first time in many years? 

Add to that the complications of a dead deer, and you have an extremely funny and, dare I say, bloody tale of self-discovery.

That is what you will experience when you see “Deer” at Restless Artist Theater.

I found “Deer” mesmerizing as the play explores more than just homicidal insanity. There is a lesson to learn, perhaps? What happens to a person who lives their lives for others when they crave to live the life that calls to them. 

Go see “Deer” and let us know what your takeaway is.

Here are some photos from RAT’s production of “Deer.”
