Thumbnail for - The Lost Boy

This account of the all-too-familiar, voyeuristic, exploitative media circus surrounding the 1874 abduction of a wealthy businessman’s 4-year-old son (generally thought to be America’s first ransom kidnapping) won playwright Susan Mach an Oregon Book Award in 2011. Artists Rep’s world premiere will be directed by outgoing artistic director Allen Nause.

What we said: "The Lost Boy has all the ingredients for a stellar piece of theater, and indeed shows some great creativity under the directorial hand of Allen Nause in its use of the carnival players as stagehands and headline barkers. But the kidnapping trope is a well-worn one, and with the exception of the final scene, the play fails to stray far from the beaten path, leaving its characters mostly one-sided and predictable."
