Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Melissa Gilbert stars in this one-woman comic drama that explores how to cope when the world you have built comes crashing spectacularly down.
Rachel Lipsky Haringay is divorced and abandoned by her irritatingly round-headed husband of many years after he discloses his Argentine lover, "Rosa the Posa." Now alone in London, Rachel is left to deal with an empty nest, a disapproving mother, a misogynist lawyer, some dubious counselors, a bad case of hypochondria and the specter of poverty. With only the family dog Axal for company, Rachel mourns her marriage, picks up the pieces, and learns to live whole again.
See it if Gilbert gives a great, very funny and believable performance is this really well written one-woman play.Great direction.Very relevant themes
Don't see it if Sets are very sparse though she makes use of the entire stage and several little props. It never gets dull.
See it if You enjoy solo shows. A very authentic look at what happens & how one feels after a relationship ends. Gilbert is wonderful in this.
Don't see it if You dislike 1 person shows or plays with simple staging.
See it if you want to see a grown-up Melissa Gilbert act out grown-up issues in a safe, pleasant, winsome solo show about a "woman of a certain age".
Don't see it if you expect to see or hear anything new or original about the timeworn tale of the privileged woman scorned & "finding herself" post-divorce.
See it if I would not recommend seeing this. Felt v. long although was 90 minutes no intermission. Hard to stay awake. Strange messages conveyed.
Don't see it if I don't understand how this got produced. The play itself is boring, why are we being told this story? It has nothing new to add.
See it if the story of a woman forced to mature when her fickle husband forces a divorce interests you. It is told with charm and some humor.
Don't see it if you believe in the title. It is not a brilliant divorce. The beginning sets up an expectation of liberation but it fails to deliver.
See it if Love the way she imitated characters telling her story, it funny too. It about breaking up that anybody can relate to.
Don't see it if Not alot of things going on stage. It's talking.
See it if Melissa Gilbert stars in solo show moving on as a divorcee from a bad Brit and multiple characters advising. Talented and likable actor.
Don't see it if one person centerstage reflecting on a bad marriage.
See it if You like MG's charisma, She stays watchable, but is too sweet in dull script w directorial missteps. A familiar divorce tale w nothing new
