Intense, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy intelligent dialogue and intense confrontation between old friends.

Don't see it if you often think plays are overwrought. The characters can seem a little too overly reactive to situations at times. Still great.

“All four characters are gratifyingly nuanced and multifaceted…This richness of character is enhanced by excellent performances…There is a stretch where 'The Floor Is Lava' seems to be headed in an atypically dark direction before it moves back onto a safer, more familiar narrative path. But it does avoid neatly resolving everything at the end, and its strong, layered characters are intriguing and enjoyable to watch.”
