What I liked

I loved the acting, the actors did a great job portraying their well know real life personalities. They seemed to take their time, finding the words, in a way that felt very believable. They both had big shoes to fill and it seemed like they put a lot of thought into honoring their characters without being caricatures. The writing was really great, and it revealed so much information, things I never considered about the era, in a way that was heartfelt and entertaining.

What I didn't like

It’s hard to say, I enjoyed this so much. There were a few moments where I was taken out of it, because the actors didn’t seem to really inhabit the space they were in (pouring a drink, or going through boxes, just felt a little rushed/not believable…) But I think that’s hard to do with such limited props, etc.

My overall impression

Such an insightful play. It revealed so many layers and perspectives of what it means to stand up for what you believe in. Really interesting debate between the two historical figures, and shines a light on how different approaches to solving the same problem can come with unexpected consequences.
