“This is a terrific play… all about staying centered when the world seems to be
falling apart around you.
Proprioception is a multilayered, sometimes amusing, sometimes intense, emotionally satisfying play.
Every character has his/her own problems and secrets and because of the superb writing, acting, and directing,
we quickly become invested in their lives
and want resolution and happiness
for them…Proprioception is one of Rover’s
finest productions. ”
