The Size of the World

In this quirky tale of a young man with a big dream — the American Dream, in fact — who rents a room from an oddball empty-nest couple in Passaic, N.J., Evered conjures up any number of theatrical ghosts while maintaining an offbeat originality throughout. The talker in Evered’s play is Peter Hogancamp (Frank Whaley), a young man with a bad brown suit and no discernible past. A Willy Loman on fast-forward, Peter dreams of conducting hotel seminars in public speaking, even as his manic enthusiasm barely disguises his lack of anything to speak about. He’s all style — used-car salesman by way of Norman Vincent Peale — and Evered effectively details the character’s slow realization of his own vacancy.

“A dangerous, daffy comedy of terrors... a crazy delight!” (New Haven Advocate)
