Didn’t try to go over the top and shock the audience. Loved the setup, which allowed the audience to take a beat and reach for a hand before jumping.
What I didn't like
I would have picked a different, less fru-fru looking alcohol bottle. Also, the content of the painting was hilariously not acknowledged. Not sure there was time or need to explore that, but it left me wanting more. Sequel?
My overall impression
Mr. Langer and Ms. Fountain deliver powerful performances that somehow capture the general experience of every heartbreak by focusing on very specific details of one particular story. The tech methods applied during scene changes/breaks really gave the performance a polish which one could understandably not have been expecting, given the austere cozy venue. Compelling writing keeps a great pace for this 65 minute performance, which will leave you with a dry mouth and damp eyes.
