What I liked

I loved the world they created. When I walked in, I didn’t notice the canned elevator music until about four minutes in, and the introduction to the piece only needed that music to set it all up. The space created with the carpet was very well utilized. I enjoyed the characters, they seemed fleshed out and real, we’ve probably met all of them in our lives. The acting was top notch and the script was wonderful. Even the ending, which isn’t black and white, is satisfying despite all the characters not quite receiving satisfaction. It was a slice of life.

What I didn't like

I thought Laura was going to make her teeth bleed when she cleaned them. But that actress is fucking top notch. The keening was well deserved.

My overall impression

The best script to come out of this company. I loved the weird playful parts, the classic parts, it’s just fucking good.
