This is an open wound of a piece. Direct, impassioned, eloquent and nuanced, Sean’s play is a brutal and graphic meditation on the struggles of a soldier, habituated to the mindset of war, to reintegrate himself into his life and relationships.
There’s nothing maudlin or self pitying here, just honesty in a whirlwind of well crafted remembrance as this character sifts through the wreckage of his life, stunned by the inevitability of his loss but no less hurt by it.
If your spending a day at the Fringe, this play will be your shot of 5hour energy. I hit the street buzzing on Sean’s fierce intensity and the piece’s profound insight.
