The director’s vision of the world and the way he presented that in the chaos of an after death “spring cleaning” gave the show a real feel and the actors a chance to connect and embrace the items in ways unique to their characters. Nothing on the stage was just set decoration it all had meaning and that really helped bring the show to life.
What I didn't like
It felt a little abrupt. Somehow I wanted a bit more in the story to completely embrace the ending,
My overall impression
There is never a dull moment in this show. Raw feelings of the characters create a powerful arc around grief in a family long after the immediate loss. It explores what lingers for each of them and is complicated with an interracial element. Even though this a dramatic topic, the amazing director and terrific cast inject humor with heart into the show accented masterfully with the use of the props that help give the absent family member a place on the stage. It is a great show that moves and provokes thought.
