What I liked

The subject matter is plenty enough to chew on, and I think the show did a good job of showing where both the characters were coming from without making either one an outright villain. I was white-knuckling right until the very end. The acting was top-notch, but Jim did a masterful job of ratcheting up the tension and not letting up until it couldn’t possibly wind any tighter… and then the tension snaps.

What I didn't like

This show did exactly what I wanted it to do.

My overall impression

Not only does this play wrestle with some very important questions in our modern zeitgeist, but the escalation of conflict is masterful – just when I thought the play was easing up, it would twist the knife a little harder. Made me uncomfortable in a good good way.
