Banal, Disappointing, Intelligent, Confusing, Quirky

See it if you want to see three actors in an old style drama bring about multiple tensions in a one scene play with good sound effects and lighting.

"I was so looking forward to the psychological chess game and deep intrigue of this play and wanted to revel in the one-upmanship, the power shifts and the twists and turns of manipulation. I wanted to delve into open marriage and gender disparity, be turned on by, and feel challenged by the torn curtain reveal of male anxieties. I was hoping for a wild ride through a deadly carnival of human emotion...It didn’t happen."
