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 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 are a fan of bad Lifetime movies- this is pure melodrama and camp under the guise of a Very Important Topic on a very cheap set.
Don't see it if You are looking for a thoughtful debate play on abortion (the pregnant woman isn't even a character), nuanced writing, or quality acting.
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're a fan of Ibsen whose influence is all over the play. Production elements are top-notch and the theater venue is perfect for the play.
Don't see it if much like one of the characters in the play, you are a staunch conservative whose sensibilities are easily offended.
See it if You want to think about some deep question and hard subjects. The actress playing Joyce is fantastic and this show will hit some tough spots
Don't see it if You want a more comedic or light show. This is a pretty serious production overall. It does have its flaws and some actors are a little weak
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 like to open your mind and rethink a position on an issue that is unfortunately present in today's world
Don't see it if If heavy topics make you very upset or uncomfortable
See it if you appreciate effort to bring new perspective on abortion dilemma: pressure placed on grandparent couples' otherwise shaky relationships
Don't see it if you don't enjoy unsubtle/amateurish acting; focus on grandparents diverts focus from gut-wrenching abortion decision by parents
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.
