We take for granted fine naturalistic acting; this off off bdway production shows why it's harder to pull off than you think

See it if fairly moving 1st act at funeral where daughter deals w loss of dysfunct'l mother; mixed w humor; Emilie Gubler/lead has bright future

Don't see it if arbitrary LGBT love story; 2nd act bizarre; most actors over or under-act, frankly painful at times to watch

Ambitious, Good acting, An angxty soap opera, Twist ending underwritten, Disappointing

See it if ... you like reminiscences with POV from the funeral. Estranged daughter tells her very troubled life story. Ending Twilight Zone-ish.

Don't see it if ... you don't want to see a play in need of a dramaturgical re-write. Why this title? It's not about apathy, and there are no answers.
