Can You Hear Their Voices?

Peculiar Works Project's subpar revival of Hallie Flannagan and Margaret Ellen Clifford's 1931 docudrama about starving farmers in Arkansas has its mind so firmly on spiritual concerns that worldly issues, such as how the show sounds and looks, evaporate in a fog of good intentions. The piece retains some assets (Seth Bradford’s clever contemporary score, a script with melodramatic punch), but taken as a theatrical experience, it's bankrupt.—Helen Shaw
