"Theatre Three boasts some of Dallas' strongest actors in its cast, too, notably Davies and Mayfield. They do bruised emotions superbly, moving as if their characters are bone-weary from sadness. When Davies finally releases Lyman's pent-up rage in the final moments, the play at last feels like it has achieved an honest human sentiment."  Elaine Liner--Dallas Observer

I played The Father

in

Directed by Rene Moreno

for

"Most of the show’s humor arises from the interplay between the ‘friendly” domineering ghost father and gently befuddled Curtis. Graner’s Curtis enters into the comic repartee with an openhearted, unsuspecting innocence; and Davies’ ghost nails every laugh line like a wry Johnny Carson with a favorite guest."

I played Gus Klingman in

 

Directed by BJ Cleveland

for

"Davies possesses amazing reactive skills, and he employs them with subtlety that is wonderfully effective in the intimate performance space at the Bath House Cultural Center on the banks of White Rock Lake. His Gus evolves gradually, reluctantly, from brooding loner to tentative out-reacher."
