What I liked

Raw, unique, well written, terrific cast. Manik Bahl as Office Manager ignites the action; Romney Manger and Mary Newsome legitimize the role of sheriff deputies, presenting a stabilizing influence amid the controlled chaos of Act 1; Allison Blaze is on bloody point as Lauren Cherry, she creates and sustains a portrait of active drug addiction in all its consequences, she delves below the surface of the stereotypical homeless drug addict and cloaks the character in humanity. Manny Rodriguez delivers tragedy in the form of comedic excellence, his character a paradox, functioning as the anchor between the siblings but one that is sinking them both. Liston Spence as Thomas Cherry speaks volumes with a controlled, well paced emotional depth, and imaginative depiction of what it means to be a recovered alcoholic, lending strong believable credence to the sad progression of an alcoholic relapse.

What I didn't like

Cell phones going off during the performance (turn off your phones)

My overall impression

Pleasantly surprised at the plays pace, range, and writing.
A Fringe must see.
