See it if You want to see a beautifully written, life-affirming, meditation on life & love. You want a concise, perfectly edited play.
Don't see it if You're uncomfortable with talk about suicide. You don't like monologue format. You want characters to talk to each other.
See it if You believe in after-life. You like stories about marital strife. This is a two character play with both on stage at once. Sometimes weird.
Don't see it if You get upset about death and suicide Cheating husbands and wives are against your value system.
"Their story is tragic, but is told with warmth and hope. The language is poetic with hauntingly beautiful rhythms that capture the spectator's imagination with vivid imagery. The simple staging of the story is sufficient for the play to appear sincere, and for the audience to focus on the depth of the characters and the beauty of the text. 'Arthur and Esther,' in summation, is like an intimate art house film, well-written and well-executed, with two excellent performers."
