Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater is giving a lesser-known Tennessee Williams play all it’s got, and the result is a flawless production of a curious, captivating show. “Period of Adjustment”is subtitled “A Serious Comedy,” and the play is just that – part light-hearted comedy, part soul-searching drama and all intriguing theater. First-class acting and spot-on set design create a stimulating evening of excellent entertainment. (Barnstable Patriot)

Michael Unger’s direction is sharp, aptly playing up the tempo and insightfully drawing on Williams’ universal references to marital misunderstanding, miscommunications and mishaps, which are sometimes humorous and always have a ring of truth. (Cape Cod Times)

Rarely performed ‘comedy’ a fascinating spectacle for Williams fans in Wellfleet… WHAT’s fine production of this play reveals artistic riches a’plenty for audiences to take away. The actors, the older couple played by James Ludwig and Alyssa H. Chase with Jefferson McDonald and Ali Ewoldt as the newlyweds, are extremely appealing and, under the direction of Michael Unger, take on the challenge with as much zeal as Williams did. Unger… serves the playwrights’ vision spot on here, as does the rest of the cast like the pros they prove to be.(Wicked Local Provincetown)

WHAT’s cast, under the director of Michael Unger, perform admirably, with Ludwig giving us a hilarious portrayal of the upwardly mobile redneck Ralph and McDonald fully committed as the tremor-afflicted veteran who looks as though he will physically implode from the emotional turmoil within. Both women are competent performers, with Ewoldt particularly excelling in her role as the virginal southern belle who is absolutely horrified by the lack of gentility shown toward her by her frustrated husband.
