What I liked

Many of the stories. The essential conceit of the staging. The energy of everyone “waiting their turn.”

What I didn't like

Honestly, the format interfered somewhat with my enjoyment/appreciation of the show (which is entirely personal, let me be clear). And this one seemed less “in sync” than another of this company’s shows.

My overall impression

Fundamentally this lets individuals tell important life stories in a kind of rotating reader’s theatre. At its best the result are flashes of healing, insight and melancholy truths.
