Review by CHAIRMAN BARNES

My overall impression

Relationships are hard. The dizzy excitement of blossoming love cannot sustain and there are thousands of environmental factors that would keep it from growing UNLESS you can manage to keep them at bay. This funny and moving story examines the plight of a couple about to give in to those myriad destructive forces. Amy Tofte’s writing is confident and clever as she guides her characters, Jay and Ellen, through a mediated divorce, supposedly the easy way out of their marriage. But, they soon discover the “easy way” isn’t always the cleanest way and their situation devolves to hysterically farcical levels. I was thoroughly entertained and on the edge of my seat wondering what would become of these two.
