Disappointing, Production launched prematurely

See it if you want to see a production with a great idea and some potential that still belongs on an editor's desk

Don't see it if you don't want to see a production that still needs a lot of work and exhibits many of a young author's flaw Read more

Very intimate venue / ok set / well-lit, Moving / resonant / absorbing / relevant, Off-the-chain amazing lead actor (dad), Predictable "twist" / disappointing book, Dizzying / confusing / ambitious

See it if you like to support new young writers, actors, theater companies, etc. Very sad (moving) story about an estranged father-son relationship.

Don't see it if you want a comedic lite & fluffy play, &/or you confuse easily when the book's not linear. Performance-driven here, if you're interested. Read more

“A compelling story about the final reunion of an ailing father and his estranged adult son...The play is written wonderfully...From beginning to end, this well-written drama managing to keep the audience focused and wondering how this situation will ultimately end...All of the actors in this play succeed in bringing to life characters that are deeply damaged, occasionally humorous, often perhaps relatable, and consistently fascinating to watch...Very powerful.”
