The play, actors, and theme.

What I didn't like

Not a thing.

My overall impression

Incredible experience from start to finish. The venue is cozy, the set is meaningful, the writing layered and poignant, and the acting was superb! The subject matter (homelessness) taken from the vantage point of women was touching and expertly done. Nancy Youngblut delves into the psychosis of a lost soul with abandon and humor, and she drives the story forward with exuberance and unpredictability. Jennifer Laks, playing the social worker attempting to assist this waylaid woman, grounds the piece with honesty and compassion, and just enough chutzpah so we never doubt her resolve or profession; she deftly toggles our emotions and we never see it coming. Highly recommend going to see this as soon as possible, and bring tissues. The tears will flow from both comedy and tragedy, and you will be all the happier for it.
