What I liked

I loved the theatre intimacy so I could really feel and see the faces and emotion of these excellent actors. I like the simple stage set, so the full attention was on the acting and storyline. Very well written script with lots of twists and turns and revelation of the human condition in its need to be “right” and heard. Thought provoking and educational about being honest to ones true self.

What I didn't like

Nothing….great just as it is!! Bravo!

My overall impression

Wow! What an engaging script and storyline brilliantly expressed with an excellent cast! The story teaches a real lesson in relational conflict, expression and resolution…no holding back ones true feelings or tip toeing around them. Observing the struggle between these three characters was educational and riveting, not to mention highly entertaining and humorous although dark at the same time. I am not usually a good spectator but I was fully pulled in and loved it! Bravo to the director, Patrick Hamilton, and excellent actors perfectly cast… Chelsea Smith, Conor McGee and Darrell Shipley. I will look for their names in other works.
