Last Chance

September 18, 2003|David C. Nichols

Minor Demons: The crisis of America's disaffected youth culture has only intensified since this drama premiered in 1988. Shadows of Columbine now accompany Bruce Graham's nightmare play about a 14-year-old accused murderer and the demon-ridden attorney he haunts. The tautly crafted tale features Paul Eric Jerome as lawyer Deke Winters and Flannery Lunsford as the alleged perpetrator. Graham's overlapping dialogue and clashes are strong meat, and director Caerthan Banks draws searing intensity from a cast whose individual idiosyncrasies are immaterial when set against their sterling commitment.

-- David C. Nichols

Ends Saturday at the Company of Angels Theatre, 2106 Hyperion Ave., L.A. (323) 883-1717.
