About the Show

Set in New York City and London, this drama explores the culture clash of American optimism with British cynicism, and how a tangled love story can sit somewhere in between.

Unfocused, Well acted, Disappointing, Unfullfilled promise, Draggy middle

See it if you love romantic dramedies. PLT has some sweet moments and appealing actors. But the script betrays its early promise, becoming a muddle.

Don't see it if you want insights. PLT glides on the surface; many plot points are nonsensical. Some exchanges repeat/annoy. Opening scenes shine. Read more

Great acting, Absorbing, Disappointing, Slow, Pointless

See it if You want to see a show that is well acted and engaging, characters you want to know more about (though all too familiar) then poof-the end.

Don't see it if You hate plays that don’t seem to have any point. There is no arc. No character learns or changes or teaches or even has any fun.

"In addition to its poignant depiction of dementia, and its comic depiction of culture clash, the play also highlights the problems today’s recent grads have entering the workforce. At times it seems to want to take a political turn, but overall the play conveys how unsettled the world can easily become, and the consequences of our decision to share or not share our private struggles with others. All three actors give really fine performances...The play moves along, keeping you engaged."
