An admirable attempt to create a hyper-realistic play results in a head-scratching theatrical experience for the audience.... full review

Reminiscent of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," this play has some juicy, flawed characters, but we never learn enough about them to understand their twisted world and outrageous actions. ... full review

I loved it! At most times, hilarious, with moments of thought-provoking dialog. Entertained throughout the show--a clever and unique storyline written, acted and directed by a very talented dude!... full review

It's a wild ride. I couldn't tell you exactly what happened, but the chemistry of all the actors kept me involved. It's a kind of "misery loves/needs company" story that sneaks up on you.

Given this, the play was fascinating to watch because you had no idea where it was going. By the end, I’m not sure where it ended up. Was there character growth? Did I feel more sympathetic for Amanda? Did she change? Or was she just a drunken bitch who just kept using people? Even now, almost 24 hours after the show, I’m still not sure.
