The Great Man is dead. The family of Wyatt Holloway, American novelist, squints into the light where his shadow used to be.

Don't see it if A deliberate pace and issues of life, death and art don't appeal, even in an intelligent and honest rumination with some fine performances.
See it if You like thought provoking, albeit long shows, that make you think about life, death, happiness, etc. that makes the most of its small stage
Don't see it if you don't like slightly humorous and thought provoking shows that drag without much of a driving force getting it to the end.
See it if you like dramatic plays. Acting was good and staging was interesting. Thought provoking
Don't see it if you don't like though provoking shows about death and relationships dynamics between family memebers.
See it if You like plots that are confusing and make no sense. Also, if you like seeing characters that don't belong together get together.
