Portraits // Observatory Theatre

Portraits is a horrifying tale that perfectly encapsulates some very big questions around legacy and how much loyalty we owe to the ideals and values of our parents after they die. It is not exactly enjoyable to watch because it is so cynical, but it somehow feels necessary currently to ask these questions. Driscoll’s play explores legacy and tradition and begs the question: can we ever really break free from our legacy or are we merely products of our inheritance? Observatory Theatre’s production of Portraits moves the audience from their comfortable existence into the world of the Godbold mansion to face not only the ghosts of this family but also those of their own. Bravo!
