Disappointing, Quirky, Edgy

See it if If you like Sam Sheppard no matter what play it where its playing at.

Don't see it if Not a great production. Acting is fair at best and so is the staging of it. This rendition can be missed as it misses on many accounts.

Intense, Quirky, Great writing, Riveting, Absorbing

See it if you like Shepard's writing and his subjects - off beat, true-to-life characters in a one act, one scene intimate production with good actors

Don't see it if you expect a complete story - here you get different points of view and tie them together without a happy ending.

Disappointing, Slow, Ambitious, Edgy, Great writing

See it if you have never seen this classic of American theater. It is a serviceable production. The store front gallery adds to the environment.

Don't see it if you need to believe that the central characters cannot keep their hands off each other. For me they played the words but missed the feelings

Intimate setting, Good shoestring production, Uneven script

See it if you’d like to experience a clear presentation of an important but flawed script from an important American playwright.

Don't see it if you have seen many productions of this play: This one, though adequate, tells you nothing new. Read more

Disappointing, Intense, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy Sam Shepard's plays no matter what; you are sympathetic to and understand the backwoods relationships portrayed.

Don't see it if you only like musicals; think Shepard is overly dramatic and soap opera-ish; are overly annoyed by one bad actor in the show. Read more

Realistic, Masterful, Great acting, Great writing

See it if You want to see masterful writing with exceptional acting

Don't see it if you don't know that rural America lives in trailer parks and motel rooms where alcoholism, philandering and incest are standard, not unusual Read more
