See it if interesting storytelling though it needs work. Entertaining enough.
Don't see it if The main character is excruciating to watch. Stilted acting and no chemistry with any other actors. Even wardrobe for her was too severe.
See it if You are interested in stories about coping w/ aging parents or dementia.Quick 75min play. The woman playing the older mother was great!
Don't see it if The play has potential but the acting was very uneven. Someone is miscast and it unfortunately took away from the show.
“’Unraveled’ left me snarled and it shouldn’t have. Despite my ignorance of physics, I am unfortunately familiar with ‘Unraveled’s’ subject and theme: the effect on family of late-in-life loss of selfhood...I was indifferent to most of the characters — Joy, George the Younger, and Joy’s swain Michael— but I found Ladonna Burns the hospice caregiver and Susanna Hay as Old George very moving in roles that were well written.”
"Generally uninvolving….Adds little to the growing genre…Well-worn tale of a grown child coming to grips with a parent's decline makes a frail attempt at offering something new by having the child…serve up some didactic mumbo jumbo...Focus on the fluidity of time inspires the structural approach of simultaneously depicting Joy and her mother…across two time zones…Performances go from the high quality of Burns and Hay...to less inspired work."
