Jay Stull directs Rantoul and Die, which runs through July 20. It features Derek Ahonen, Sarah Lemp, Matthew Pilieci and Vanessa Vaché.

According to the Amoralists, "In the play, Rallis and Debbie's marriage has reached its expiration date. In fact, it's soured and stuck to the bottom of the carton. She wants him to pack his stuff and hit the bricks, but he's clinging to the past like a cat on a screen door. How far will a man go to hang onto his lady? It's a thin line between love and hate, between a kiss and a punch, between an ice cream cone and a beer bottle to the back of the head."

The critics have filed their reviews, and has collected them for our readers.
