See it if You like to support a playwright and actors even if neither may be at the top of their game for this production that could use much editing!
Don't see it if You can’t sit through contrived storytelling that throws everything...and I mean EVERYTHING at you in the place for any depth or meaning.
"Despite its high stakes and fast emotional clip...rarely feels soap operatic: credit lies in the well-rounded script and the cast's subtle chemistry...By presenting characters we can simultaneously laugh at, root for, and relate to, Bigwood drives home the point that these merciless systems can impact any of us...Edging the peripheries of TFTNA's black box...This tight internal frame keeps us invested in the action yet removed enough to observe the broader issues at play."
"It’s refreshing to find a conventional, naturalistic production of a new script...What’s most striking about the script is Ms. Bigwood’s naturalistic dialogue. She’s very skilled at delayed exposition...What’s more, the playwright imbeds the most significant lines in the conversation with marvelous subtlety...Varnell’s direction is smooth and subtle, seemingly effortless...Some of the actors rush their lines...They’ve neglected to balance the needs of naturalism with the needs of the listener."
"It's frustrating that this play never starts nor illuminates how 'gentrification sucks'. No protagonist is compelling enough to care about. And it's hard to maintain interest in a dilemma - even a potential eviction - that the playwright herself is not sufficiently focused on...Suffers from a profound lack of cohesiveness, dramatic imagination, and theatricality. It's a chaotic mix of mystifying sub-plots, exasperating narration, and a gentrification plot that only resurfaces now and then."
