Investigative, Poetic, Complex, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if you already know the genius of Margolin’s playwriting. There are passages in this play among the most beautiful of her great body of work.

Don't see it if you’re not on your listening game. The piece makes you meet it halfway, and the brilliance of the writing rewards real concentration.

Thought-provoking, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Slow

See it if you want to see a dysfunctional marriage, a daughter trying to care for her ailing father, and a past haunted by a false accusation.

Don't see it if you want a musical or a happier story. The play is slow at times but is wonderfully acted.

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Two mostly unmeshed stories of adulterous unhappily married daughter and her father haunted by memories of being hunted by Joe McCarthy.

Could be condensed, Is the ending satisfying?, Is the ending dissatisfying???, Terrific acting

See it if you want to compare yesteryears’ politics with the chaos of today. A father’s deteriorating mind gets interrogated; a mom seeks passion.

Don't see it if You’re not caffeinated. Surprisingly captivating at times. Set: chairs and a well-used bed. Power of ending arguable. Writing virtuous. Read more
