Ars Nova and WP Theater (Women’s Project Theater) present the world premiere of Rachel Bonds' play with music about twin sisters, featuring songs by Brooklyn indie-rock duo The Bengsons. More…
While navigating the unsettling waters of young adulthood, twin sisters return home to find their father in a moment of crisis. Under the cover of late-night, small-town shadows, sleep is elusive, connections are frayed, and the Southern summer heat presses in. An ethereal, honest, funny-sad show about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go.
See it if You like SLOW dramas that don't have much to say with very uninteresting characters.
Don't see it if Didn't care about any characters & the story wanders aimlessly with no payoff. The musical numbers add nothing but minutes to the runtime
See it if You want to see a unique and intimate story. All of the actors were terrific. I loved the way that music was used in the story.
Don't see it if ...You like big production values. I thought the set was very clever and was all that was needed, but it is simple.
See it if You don't mind a play that hints at stories that never get resolved. This one explores relationships/loneliness and unrealized dreams.
Don't see it if You want action, story arcs, fast-paced drama. Don't like Southern summer nights w some folk music. I liked it by the end-it grew on me.
See it if You like slice of life drama's that don't resolve and have the patience of mathusala. Lovely ensemble acting, but the pace was painful.
Don't see it if You want conflict to resolve itself, appreciate reasonable pacing. You are expecting a traditional musical. The music was a "side note" ;-)
See it if you like exploration of character - meandering, roaming, interesting, more like an exercise than a play
Don't see it if you are looking for linear, play with a punch or a strong story

See it if you like simple stories, sweetly told. Great performances and smart design make it an interesting watch.
Don't see it if ultimately, it doesn't hold together well as drama. The narrative threads don't really hold together in the end, sadly.
See it if you like sensitive writing (Rachel Bond) and focus on relationships vs.plot. Strong cast, great directing...funny-sad songs by the Bengsons.

Don't see it if You need earphones when you go to the theater.Some of the dialogue is hard to hear.
See it if You yearn for theater that moves you, where actors live their roles and the border between theater and life dissolves in compassionate words
