What I liked


What I didn't like


My overall impression

Fresh. Funny. Heart-breaking. Engaging. A real think piece. I love what these guys do as playwrights and actors. The work is intelligent, but not snobby. The piece is wonderfully portable- not in a bad way -and I hate to call the show “fringy” but something really well done here is creating a show that falls under an hour (without feeling incomplete), can be unpacked with props and set pieces in under 15 minutes, but still look professional….

I remember in the same team’s piece last year there was a device used in the script that took me a while and when I understand it it was like “OHHHH I get it, cool”- this show had a similar device and I never fully got it- although I mostly got it and I liked it… (But I wish I could have fully gotten it.)

I can’t wait to see what these guys do next year. I’m a fan.
I’d also love a longer version of this show.
