What I liked

The poetic words and phrases written by the playwright. I wish I had the book because I would love to go back and notate some of the very poignant messages. Again the characters of Olive and Hattie stood out in performance.

What I didn't like

Anytime you have characters with specific dialect or accent, it is hard to maintain. The two young girls playing woman one and women 2 often dropped the regional dialect, but I know this is hard to do. Kudos for the effort. I don’t know if this was due to the actual writing and poetic pausing, but to have so much of the dialogue broken into breathy phrases Creates an unnatural feel. In particular was when Maddie is discussing how she received the news of the death of her son in the crash.

My overall impression

A well written play and well directed. Lighting and said accommodated the space and allowed actors to hold attention versus set design. The acting was professional and engaging especially the character Olive and Hattie.
Emotionally driven.
