What I liked

I loved the intersections among dialogue, expression, and physical movement. Everything weaved in and out together in harmony. The set and staging were so beautifully minimalistic, allowing the performance to take center stage. I really did feel like I stepped into a world that they have generously built for us.

What I didn't like

I very rarely say this, but I can’t find a single thing I didn’t like about this show.

My overall impression

I feel that I have just experienced an intimate moment with the post-apocalyptic Adam and Eve. Jarring, palpable, intense. This is one of those rare stories that’s all about words and communication and yet, at the same time, it’s about none of that at all. We spend so much of our lives saying what we don’t actually mean and placing more meaning on things we never say. This play lives in that notion. It deconstructs it, strips our ability to speak and articulate our thoughts “properly,” and renders it all into feeling. I was so moved that I’ve seen it twice already. ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS.
