I wasn’t wild about the continuous direct addresses to the audience in the beginning of the play, and enjoyed far more the scenes between the characters. I also expected a little more science or at least some depth about the whale behaviors.
My overall impression
Thought-provoking, well-acted, interesting show. It zips by – you don’t feel as if you’ve been there for an hour. The interactions between the sister, Bridget, played by Sherry Berg, who was wonderful, and Ralph, played by Jamie Engber, were delightful to watch. Sherry Berg, in particular, brought a lot of depth and reality to the role. All the actors were effective. I’ve never seen the film Blackfish and you don’t need to have any familiarity with that movie to enjoy this play.
