Dog Act Review: Mateo Moreno; Big Vision, Empty Wallet

I hadn't heard of Big Vision, Empty Wallet (though I connect a wee bit with the concept) and so was psyched that Mateo Moreno's review was not only good, but introduced me to a new website! It's a combo review with Beirut, another play that imagines the future, and though there are many quotes I like, I was particularly struck by this:
Liz Douglas is an intriguing villain, where the villain isn’t really a villain. Her Vera is simply looking out for herself, and won’t be left out alone in the cold again.
I like this because I think Liz does an excellent job at tapping into the grief and desperation of Vera without ever diminishing her power.
