Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if Plays that take you deep into the intimate thoughts, feelings and world of 3 characters attempting to find the the truth in life and death.

Don't see it if You want to see a lighthearted play.

Cliched, Banal, Disappointing, Slow, Excruciating

See it if you're interested in seeing some decent acting in spite of terrible writing.

Don't see it if you want to see a play with good writing. It drags. It's riddled with cliches. It has some surprisingly good acting in spite of that.

"Aronovitch tells us about these intertwined lives instead of dramatizing affecting moments of conflict .When he presents scenes from their past, this piece hits the right notes. Too often however, Aaronovitch settles for debate rather than revealing reminiscences. Kudos to director Kane for tamping down on the talk whenever possible...She does her best to keep the performers moving about the stage...A talky play into which Kane and company infused plenty of love and angst."
