Ambitious, Indulgent, Entertaining, Relatable, Overdone

See it if you enjoys plays with many characters whose connections aren't immediately apparent. Trevor Vaughn & Sam Corbin stand out among a good cast.

Don't see it if you dislike theater that tries too hard to be profound. The piece would benefit from cutting 25% of both the characters and the run time.

Clever, Funny, Great writing, Creative, Entertaining

See it if You like intelligent contemporary theater which creatively illuminates OUR TOWN's continued resonance through warm, humorous, human tales.

Don't see it if You don't like nostalgic and, at times, wistful, exploration of one community's relationship to its high school, people, and drama program.

"Though a tad self-indulgent at times, especially in moments when Praley as narrator melded the story of the play itself with the story of his writing process, the play’s self-referential structure created a richly humorous tone. Directed by Isaac Klein, the performances hit the play’s comedic and tragic moments with impressive panache. As Hank, one of the fathers, Chance Carroll particularly shines as the center of the play’s tragic moments."
