In bleak `No End of Blame,' there's no relief for audience

Theater Review

You can't - and probably shouldn't - expect a political cartoonist to be subtle. So there's no reason to hope for subtlety in No End of Blame, Howard Barker's play tracing the career of a Hungarian cartoonist from the trenches of World War I to 1980s London.

And in this respect, director Richard Romagnoli's production doesn't disappoint. No End of Blame is based loosely on the life of German cartoonist Victor Weisz, and as cartoons go, this one is drawn with an especially broad brush.

NO END OF BLAME -- Through July 23 -- Olney Theatre Center, 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Road, Olney -- $15 -- 301-924-3400 or olneytheatre.org.
