Review: Echo’s Founders, Keepers felt somewhat lost Echo Theatre opened Aurora Behlke’s play Founders, Keepers last weekend which was also the world premiere of the piece.

The play centers on five fifth grade girls who were assembled by the U.S. government in Washington to rewrite the Constitution as the nation is in crisis and the capitol is in flames.

Save for two who are best friends, the five are strangers who form and break bonds as they determine the fate of the country.

Although a nonsensical premise, the idea elicited curiosity. However, as the play on Saturday night unpacked, the premise waned and despite a strong cast, Behlke’s story never stuck the landing.
