What I liked

A thoughtful, intelligent script that is ABOUT something substantial. These are artists interested in contributing to our cultural conversation. Great use of the space, very cool costumes, props and set pieces.

The script and presentation were such that the folks I talked to after the show all had different ideas about what the play was and what it was saying. Well done.

What I didn't like

The only thing I would say is that because the show went up before sunset (show time was 7PM), the sun was shining through the blackout masking a bit and compromised the lighting design.

My overall impression

Excellent, passionate performance, well written, expertly directed. Exactly what Fringe shows should be.
