Tony nominated director, Martin ('Annie') Charnin, helms this New York premiere about a newly married couple facing a life-changing decision. More…
In this new American play by Cate Ryan, a young couple are confronted with a gut-wrenching decision, one that will impact their parents, their consciences, and the rest of their lives.
See it if You're ok with a quiet somewhat clichéd if well meaning serious drama designed to begin conversation; or have conservative friends to bring.
Don't see it if You're looking for a light-hearted evening, a detailed intellectual discussion or have unshakable conservative views of social issues.
See it if You like serious themes like religion and ethical dilemmas and acting that's earnest
Don't see it if You expect the writer to respect the audience by not having the actors guess stupidly about what could be wrong with their pregnant kids
See it if You want a serious drama about a heavy topic. Though it wasn't the best play, it does make you think about how you'd react in that situation
Don't see it if You're easily depressed, don't like talk-heavy plays or are narrow-minded. This play did not blow me away at all, but the actors were decent
See it if you enjoy drama. Show was tight, but often predictable & bit repetitive. Ending excellent. Plot a bit reminiscent of Twilight of the Golds.
Don't see it if you are looking for light, enjoyable show.
See it if you aren't afraid of the razor edge of an issue.
Don't see it if face acting is a turn off. Acting was uneven and heavy handed, save the part played by the son who felt like a real human being.
See it if you enjoy family drama, ethical issues in a dull setting. Good concept poorly executed.
Don't see it if you're looking for a fun, lively, upbeat show.
See it if you enjoy shows that present ethical dilemmas/ heart-wrenching decisions.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy a lot of family drama and discussion about a difficult family issue. Not a light night at the theater.
See it if You get a free ticket & are in the mood for a very long, nothing new, Easter Sunday debate about abortion between in-laws.
Don't see it if Cliched, overwritten conflict between spouses and in-laws around the issue of abortion no longer serves your creative spirit.
See it if You want to see a VERY intense family drama. Beautiful very realistic looking set. Adam Petherbridge was excellent as was Glynis O'Connor
Don't see it if A very sad, stressful show. Not a fun night out although play is absorbing and not boring. Situation discussed in play could be upsetting.
See it if So its mostly a family prepping for a holiday and complaining about in-laws, that morphs into blaming each other for the central plot point
Don't see it if There is interesting dialogue around the political/ethical implications of their shared family challenge..but it's a lot of blah in between
See it if A family struggle with a devastating diagnosis of likely birth-defects in pregnancy deserves smarter writing, more nuance & less soap-opera
Don't see it if This drama would be a strong Lifetime movie of the week, but theater audiences will expect more complexity to examine the moral dilemma.
