What I liked

It’s a play in which family secrets compound, but it doesn’t feel rote or want for momentum. A strong cast is anchored by the formidable Susan Louise O’Connor and affecting Allison Youngberg. The final line of the play could not be more fitting or perfect. Great direction keeps it all brisk and three-dimensional. There’s no way you won’t laugh aloud or be invested in the journey. Very strong example of the kind of play I wish we could see more of.

What I didn't like

Latecomers. If people aren’t wise enough to want to be first in line to witness a talent pool like this one, it should be their loss. There is no way a throng of discerning audiences wouldn’t want to take their places. :)

My overall impression

Nuanced performances, deft direction and sharp writing make this a show a must-see.
