What I liked

This play staged in a black box theatre was an absolute delight. The venue itself was perfectly suited for the intimate and charming nature of the show, with its four corners and doors that were cleverly incorporated into the staging. The story revolved around the lives of four residents in Sunset Plazas, a communal courtyard of an apartment building in LA. The play beautifully portrayed the relationships, camaraderie, and love that blossomed within this close-knit community.

What I didn't like

Evie’s sudden death felt a bit abrupt and lacked proper development, appearing more as a device to give the play a bittersweet ending.

My overall impression

The play struck a perfect balance between humor and emotion, weaving together moments of hilarity and sadness with finesse. The writing was witty and heartfelt, capturing the essence of a modern-day romantic comedy. It was evident that the creators had put thought and care into crafting a story that was both entertaining and relatable. If you’re in the mood for a light, heartwarming and funny theatrical experience, this play is a must-see.
