Disappointing, Pointless, Slow, Uneven acting, Banal

See it if you enjoy small cast plays in an intimate space...and don't need much plot/char coherence. Script makes little sense, but actors try hard.

Painful, Disappointing, Excruciating, Banal

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Relevant

See it if You want a raw, hilarious and sometimes even heartbreaking experience. Like all great theater, it strikes a chord of truth.

Don't see it if You don’t want to hear the raw truth from a woman’s perspective.

“Billingsley is both the star and co-author of this wildly raucous, 21st century drawing room comedy...There are many laughs to be had in this play which has been directed and co-written by Thomas G. Waites. The four principle characters poke at each other and when there is a direct hit, the humo...
