In the News
Fingersmith is a richly told page-turner of a novel, and Junge’s edge-of-your seat adaptation faithfully translates its surprise-packed storyline and adds dashes of humor to its sinister atmosphere.
Full of surprises, twists and turns, the plot is as engaging as the characters are complex.
WBUR/The ARTery: The A.R.T. Layers Love And Betrayal In Victorian Thriller 'Fingersmith' (December 16, 2016)
Take a neck brace with you: There are so many whiplash-inducing twists in “Fingersmith” that you may need it.
Junge's Herculean effort capsulizes the 582-page opus into a taut two-hour drama enhanced by exceptional performances and outstanding production design.
In a world dominated by men, Sue, Maud, and Mrs. Sucksby emerge as powerful women, giving this Victorian tale a strong feminist undercurrent.
There are lots of twists and turns you definitely have to be paying attention – it’s a great reason to be engaged at the theater.
The (very) young talented actress returns to the A.R.T. after starring in "Waitress."
Nothing is at it seems in “Fingersmith,” Alexa Junge’s nimble stage adaptation of Sarah Waters’s suspenseful crime novel set in Victorian England.
The ART production brilliantly captures the dark underside of Victorian life with Fagin-like petty criminals and then some.
That's about all one can say except to urge you to see this fascinating and surprising play while you can, as it's a masterful achievement on every level.
