“Want to see some theater that’s brand-new? Cincinnati LAB Theatre has the second and final weekend of performances and readings at Newport’s Falcon Theatre (636 Monmouth St.). Tonight at 8 p.m. it’s Chase the Dragon by Kirk Sheppard, a Cincinnati theater blogger who goes by the moniker of “The Sappy Critic.” But there’s nothing sappy about his new script, his first venture into writing for the stage, a play about the lives of at-risk youth and what happens when we don’t have a handle on our own history. I saw a performance a week ago: It has a fine cast, led by Carter Bratton as Peter, a freshly minted case worker, and Rupert Spraul, who plays a teen with a lot of issues. There’s some humor in the story, but a lot more sobering insights into how such cases are handled — and how things can go off the tracks. Between the steady directorial hand of Jared D. Doren and Sheppard’s insightful writing, this is a promising debut both for the writer and his play.”   – Rick Pender, Cincinnati’s CityBeat
