‘Edith’ Hits the Mark at Iron Crow

“What’s the matter with kids today?”  That was the question famously posed by Paul Lynde in the classic 60’s musical Bye Bye Birdie.  In Iron Crow’s presentation of Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them, the question could easily be reversed: what’s the matter with adults?

That question is answered in an engaging play written by A. Rey Pamatmat.  Well directed by Sean Elias and Assistant Directed by Robert Corona, Edith hits the mark thanks to strong acting by the three-person cast who are young adults portraying adolescents. All are making their Iron Crow Theatre debuts. 
 Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them tells the story of a 12 year-old girl Edith, played by Pimmie Juntranggur and her 16 year-old brother Kenny (Mohammad R. Suaidi) who are left to virtually fend for themselves in a middle America farmhouse during say, the 1990’s.
