The Damage Done

The Damage Done is one of playwright George F. Walker’s most affecting plays. While in true Walker fashion his characters are angry, lash out, criticize and condemn, there is a fragility to them.”- Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter

Dead Metaphor


“In And So It Goes, playwright George F. Walker gives us characters who aren’t just at the ends of their ropes — they’ve lost their grips on them entirely. We watch the characters in freefall, wondering why their ropes were so short and whether there was anything they could have done to hold on.”

“Like past works, “And So It Goes” offers a mix of pain, fear and humor. Toss in an intimate setting…. and you have a veritable feast for performers.”

And So It Goes, a comedy that descends into some of the darkest corners of human experience, wrapped in a staging that is in equal measure smart and playful.”

We the Family Poster“How do I love George F. Walker? Let me define the ways. It is difficult to put into the words the mastery with which Walker weaves together plot, story, music and lighting into roughly 80 minute long tragicomedies; plays that are so filled to the brim with humor, tragedy, absurdity, feminism, and social commentary that they appear defy the logic of time. He has resurrected the very act of theatre-going from an anachronistic novelty to an absolute necessity.”
