"Dennis Bush has created a tapestry of Everyman characters who all fit into the social norms but who find themselves hurting each other -- strangling each other with their words. They're trapped in these gender roles and mired in generations of societal expectations. We can all see ourselves in these characters. In holding up this mirror for his audiences, Bush asks us to question our behavior and the ways we can change ourselves and our world. With searing words and shocking images, RITUAL is profoundly sad and disturbing -- a powerful and very theatrical experience."
By Ross Boehringer - Artistic Director - The Ideal Theatre Company, New York, NY
