Dueling Critics: On an Average Day

SHARE Dueling Critics: On an Average Day

Robert is still living in the house he grew up in. The house is filthy. Robert is filthy. He's currently out on bond for attempted murder and he suffers from paranoid delusions.

Jack is Robert's older brother. At 15, he took over as head of the house when their dad abandoned the family. That event didn't stop him from repeating the get-away cycle when Robert came of age.

After many years, Jack shows up unexpectedly and Robert can't figure out if his brother has returned to help him or hurt him. But his rage issues are always just below the surface.

That's Johnny Clark as Robert and Stef Tovar as Jack in the play On an Average Day, from the new Route 66 Theatre Company, onstage at the Victory Gardens Greenhouse. Joining us to talk about the production are the masters of rivalry semi-sibling and otherwise, Eight Forty-Eight's dueling critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman.

On an Average Day plays at Victory Gardens Greenhouse through September 6.
