Circumference of a Squirrel

~a riff with an inner-tube~
By John Walch
Directed by Susan Reid
Cast: Daniel May

This wild ride features an inner-tube, a bagel, a donut, a lifesaver, a holiday wreath, a tire swing and a cycle of abuse smartly packaged in a darkly comic one-man show. At the center of them all sits an enigmatic squirrel and Chester, the man who spins this outlandish, funny and bruising tale of growing up with an intolerant father who has a rabid hatred for squirrels.

“Director Susan Reid unquestionably gives Circumference a muscular production, which at times literally launches May across the stage, or sends him scampering up the witty, junk-strewn backdrop. (Daniel)May certainly makes a likable companion over the play’s 90-minute running time, and Circumference touches on intriguing ideas…” — Curt Holman, Creative Loafing

“…what makes the whole thing work spin as smoothly as a CD is the construction of the script, the direction (by Susan Reid) and design of the production, and, especially, the performance of Daniel May.” — Brad Rudy, Atlanta Theatre Buzz

“Daniel May, you are incredible…Circumference of a Squirrel left us amazed, touched, and honored to have experienced your talent. I highly recommend this production!” —Audience Member, Sandra Brooks McCravy

“Walch’s intricate script…proceed[s] like an intimate storytelling session…alternately entertaining and heartbreaking… Circumference of a Squirrel may at times seem like nothing more than a getting-to-know-you chat, but you’ll leave feeling as if you’ve just caught up with an old friend.”

–Tricia Olszewski, Washington Post
