Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Intelligent, Well written & acted

See it if Potent, muscular performaces by leads & inventive staging keep Williams' strong recovery drama from having a (melodramatic) relapse

Don't see it if Drama looses steam after Santo's (an excellent Issack) exit but themes of addiction & obsession (both substance & emotional) still strong

82
Engaging acting, Great screen projections, Insightful plot

See it if Guy burns thru 13th step relationship with addict partner, hits bottom & finds hope in the end. Parallel subplot with troubled half-sister.

Don't see it if You dislike drawing on 12-step program themes, or quick-cut scene jumps like a TV script.

"A play that tends to say or do too much can often end up saying too little. Such is the case with 'The Other Day,' a play in which one development after another keeps cancelling each other out. In the opening scene, which also marks the beginning of their relationship, Mark and Santo don't exactly meet cute, but they do get right to their problems relating to life--and to each other. They are, after all, at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, divulging their addictions and their problems."

“A stunning full-fledged production for the award-winning playwright, highlighting his masterful ability to elevate subtlety to passionate art. In this story of a gay couple who connect through an anonymous substance-abuse support group, Williams gives us a world where even the tiniest sensations have the rush of full-body intimacy...Most striking about ‘The Other Day’ is its universal meditation on love and loss.”

“Isaack’s Santo is the standout performance...Some of these scenes can feel slightly repetitive, but it’s a minor flaw that detracts little from the power of the story...Luckily, peppered into the script is some necessary comic relief...that let us forget for just a second the despair unfolding on the stage...’The Other Day’ can be seen as a cautionary tale against not facing problems truthfully and openly, but it doesn’t leave audiences despairing; there is room for hope.”
