In this new play, a couple sequesters themselves away from technology in an attempt to save their floundering marriage. More…
Julie and Robert have been married for 4 years. They are not getting along. They decide to spend 24 hours together in a hotel room with no television, no cellphones, no internet or computers and see if they can work things out.
See it if u want the marital equivalent of watching paint dry: See an unhappy couple play a card game, order room service, dance a bit, whine & bicker
Don't see it if you expect the insight, drama, tension or psychological study of the Bergman film Scenes From a Marriage (which was an obvious influence).
See it if tuning into fragments of a long, failed self-help therapy session for a failed marriage might somehow benefit you.
Don't see it if you can skip listening to 75 minutes of a couple bickering over—well, it’s not clear what they’re bickering over.
See it if good acting 75 minutes subway right there interesting solution to major problem
Don't see it if subject needs additional input 75 minutes seats too tight esp. for the legs
See it if for the good actors doing their best with a script that needs work.
Don't see it if you want a fully thought out story line - leaves much to wonder about as characters need further development.
See it if intriguing situation: troubled couple spends 24 hrs in hotel 2 determine whether 2 stay together; 1st 30 mins dramatic back & forth
Don't see it if cliche-ish Husband/Wife complaints; after 30 mins play fails 2 build tension/ present insights into couple's diffs, so ending is, so what?
See it if Couple spend 24hours together to see if they want to stay together.
Don't see it if Its like been in a the therapy session. Not told the enough information about the couple, just that they are not happy with each other.
See it if The actors are good & keep the play moving as best they can; topic is interesting and would have been more involving with a better script.
Don't see it if you want real insight into the breakdown of a marriage; I was not able to grasp what the actual problem was/why is Julie the injured party?
See it if Plays about marital highs and lows and how that is played out interest you. The fact that there is no back story is OK with you.
Don't see it if You don’t connect with plays about intimate relationships. You are wanting to see a comedy about relationships a la Neil Simon.
See it if You know one of the actors and want to support or are really interested in watching people "trying" to save their marriage. Solid acting.
Don't see it if You want a story that is new or interesting. I was watching a hotel room where nothing happens. No twist, nothing. Banal characters
See it if You want to see a play about a couple that are having marital problems and what happens when they unplug and try to resolve their issues.
Don't see it if You are not interested in plays about couples and their issues. You don't want to hear some relevant dialogue delivered excellently.
See it if U want to see some decent acting & won't mind a weak plot. Dialogue was actually pretty good at times, but play goes nowhere.
Don't see it if u're expecting an action-driven plot.
See it if enjoy two very good actors portraying a couple trying to get their marriage back on track
Don't see it if you want everything to come up smelling like roses
See it if To see two good actors on stage, see a show about dimise of a relationship, to support small venue theatre, to see thought provoking show
Don't see it if you are not interested in relationship/marriage topic, you don't want to travel downtown, you expect elaborate set
See it if I liked the idea of a couple unplugging to talk and try to resolve things. The acting was good and there were some recognizable arguments
Don't see it if You need the play to go somewhere once you’ve invested the time listening to the characters.
See it if ...you like to see a married couple try to fix their marriage, without revealing anything about themselves. Who are they?
Don't see it if ...you prefer characters you learn about, and who learn something about themselves.
See it if you believe a tattered marriage can be repaired in a 75-min drama; your misery loves company; you're showing support for someone in the cast
Don't see it if you expect a fresh take on the topic; tiresome, shallow dialogue brings on a headache; you read "Tony winner" & assumed she won for writing
See it if You want to see a very accurate portrait of the end of a relationship. It's short and well written/acted, but intense.
Don't see it if It's intense & feels like watching 2 real people tear each other down & try to build each other up on stage in front of you. It's not light.
See it if You like to see a couple use an unconventional method to resolve a crumbling marriage. Good acting but plot is a bit thin.
Don't see it if You don't like to see bickering married couples
See it if you're looking for something with a lot of conflict, both between and within characters
Don't see it if you're looking for something polished - the premise is good, but the writing resorts to cliches at pivotal moments.
See it if you like plays about relationships that cover the same old issues - there's nothing "fierce" about this play.
Don't see it if you don't want to listen to other people's problems for 90 minutes and/or feel squished into your seat in a smelly, cold theater.
See it if you want to be reminded why your relationship didn't work
Don't see it if you're expecting good writing and a thought-provoking theatrical experience; better to see Scenes from a Marriage
