Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if exquisite emotional performances hold your attention. Layered like an onion truth is revealed, pain passes mother to her 3 daughters & back.

Don't see it if you are looking for cheery evening. No happy ending here. No matter what their individual intentions individual survival takes precedence.

Don't see it if You don’t want to see an early Lee Blessing play that demonstrates promise of great plays to come.
