Introducing Argos Productions
by Kelly Bedard
I’m a little bit in love with Argos Productions. With a charismatic artistic director and a mandate to perform original works with the writer involved in the development, Argos is the latest company after my heart. Their inaugural production, however, is a little shaky.
Junkie, a new work by John Shea, takes the form of a series of monologues delivered by Cal, a heroine addict waiting out his time in a 30-day rehab facility.
Cal's 90 minute journey to a place where maybe he might be okay is a fascinating one and not without its appeal, despite the unidentifiable awkward falsehood.
Argos Productions has two more productions planned at the Boston Playwrights Theatre in 2012. Find out more about the promising new company at www.argosproductions.com and be sure to check out Junkie playing at the Playwrights Theatre until Sept 4.
