Spokane’s Big Read is already getting rave reviews in its first week.
Verne Windham of KPBX-FM wrote to tell me that he was amazed by the theater adaptation of “Tim O'Brien's “The Things They Carried.” He praised it for its “deep, thorough characterizations” and “consistent attention to detail.”
Tim O'Brien's novel was adapted by Jeffrey Sanders and directed by Sara Goff in this Eastern Washington University theater department production. It has three more performances at EWU's Campus 210 Theatre, Thursday at 5 p.m., and Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 or free with EWU student ID. Then it wil be reprised on March 18, 7:30 p.m., at the Bing Crosby Theater in a free presentation.
