My overall impression
A very impressive show. “Round Rock” is well written and acted. The characters are distinct, and their motivations clear. The period costumes are nicely done. The set is spare, modular, and effective.
My only caveat is that Aaron Kozak’s intelligent and compelling script would probably work much better as a film than a stage play. The scenes are numerous, and brief, with dozens of scene transitions that, while briskly executed, give the play a staccato feel that works against the story’s momentum.
