What I liked

The show was both lighthearted and deeply emotional at the same time – I found myself laughing almost every other minute (great writing), while at the same time pulled in and connected to the undertones of the conversation: two people who are afraid to lose each other, unable to override their defenses around this… and therefore find themselves doing exactly what they are afraid of. They both develop quixotic fantasies of finding the perfectly amazing person and lose touch with the joys of what they have (which peeps through during some moments). Awesome acting. Clearly very passionate and well rehearsed.

What I didn't like

There were some great pauses. I would have loved to see even more, it really helped the scene develop a natural feel.

My overall impression

I loved this show. The setting was intimate, resonant with the overall essence of the performance: an intimate, raw, insightfully dialogued relationship between the two characters. This pulled on some heart strings.
