The writing. It takes a complex story, and breaks it down into beats that are coherent and digestible. A delightful journey that is fun and thrilling by turns.
The performances. A two-hander lives or dies by those two hands. And if they are uneven, or miscast, nothing can save the show. Not a problem here as both ladies deliver on the slightly absurd story they find themselves delivering.
The direction. Even a great script in talented actors hands can be spoiled by launching off in the wrong direction, but again not a problem here. A skilled hand on the tiller kept things moving, and on the right path from start to finish.
What I didn't like
Running late (me not the show) so I missed the very top, but luckily knew just enough ahead of time to jump in without feeling lost.
There might be room to explore some more story elements, though I’ll confess I’ve no idea what they might be. But as quick as the show is, there might be more meat to find on the bone.
