"Fortune has a lot going for it. Great premise...intriguing characters...It certainly can't be easy to play sullen for two hours but Mr. Peck, a gifted performer, does his best...Sonna is an excellent actor...The two seem genuine when expressing their hostility and hurt...Peck and Sonna do an admirable job...Hathaway does much to set the tone of the piece, a fable that shows us the cost of everything and the value of what can't be bought."
-Christopher Soden, The Column.
Our audience response to Fortune has been quite strong and overwhelming:
"Phenomenal show. I would recommend this show to everyone." "Outrageous and funny but so sad at the same time." "Soooo intense.""Tremendous acting.""I laughed and cried and then laughed and cried some more." "I absolutely related to this play, this is my life and my family.""I HATED it.""I need to go back and see it again, I can't stop thinking about this show; do you still have tickets for this weekend?"
Unlike father, unlike son. In Fortune, father and son go head to head just to earn a big time inheritance. In Bretton B. Holmes’ dark comedy, the will left by Winston’s mother locks him and his estranged father Roger in a house for seven days. With a tube of toothpaste, no TV and disagreements over Chuck Norris, they figure out what family really means." - Dallas Voice

August 30, 2001, an Attorney has arranged for an unusual midnight meeting between two men....

This World Premiere dark comedy explores the underside of familial bonds and the dangers of no TV. It is written by the same award winning playwright who penned Sex & War, and Homeland Insecurity, or how I learned to love the Patriot Act. The play stars Dylan Peck as Winston, Mark-Brian Sonna as Roger, Mike Hathaway as the attorney, and is directed by Charles Ballinger.
