What I liked

The main issue of the plot is objectively handled with a minimum of editorialization, allowing the characters and the audience to follow and learn nuances as they are discovered. What could easily devolve into hysterical rhetoric is instead examined with detachment and room to develop thoughts and opinions through examination.
The dialogue is conversational and very realistic, a credit to the playwright, director, and the skill of the actors.

What I didn't like

Transitions could be tighter.

My overall impression

A well-written, well-directed, and marvelously performed thought provoking evening of theatre. The play is really enjoyable, and the story arc is crafted to allow the audience to easily follow each character’s journey. Kudos to the cast and production staff for a wonderful show.
