Friday, May 7, and Saturday, May 8th (7:30 PM, both days) are the final performances of the Wrecking Crew‘s production of ‘Pterodactyls’ at Stone Soup in Seattle. This is a fine revival of Nicky Silver’s breakthrough play about the destruction of a Philadelphia family – the dinosaur in the living room.

“Nicky Silver’s absurdist 1993 tragicomedy deftly sketches the disintegration of Philadelphia’s Duncan family, an elite clan hobbled by extremely bad judgment, narcissism, and emotional deafness the way the dinosaurs were hobbled by a dust-filled atmosphere….Andrew Tribolini seems so effortlessly creepy you wonder whether he’s even going for creepy.” — Seattle Weekly, April 28, 2010 review
