Intense, Edgy, Romantic, Dramatic, Immersive

See it if Man with problems meets a helpful soul in a bar. Immersive performance in a real bar. Heavy themes of addition, breakup and incest.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in those heavy themes. Well written & acted but no big surprises. Protagonist slowly discovers his past. Non-linear.

Ambitious, Riveting, Great writing, Clever, Thought-provoking

See it if you are up to explore the human condition, how the past brings one to the present. Strong acting in a unique setting that has many moments.

Don't see it if you are up for a linear story - many flashbacks here to two other periods. Not the most comfortable seating tends to destroy the experience.

June 8th, 2018

“The playwright’s poetic symbols meaningfully represent the mother/son relationship, establishing...the unique beauty of the love between them...The exceptional talents of a powerful ensemble with precise, empathetic direction...bring the production to life. They allow its complexity to soar. Without this cast and director, who ironed out the potential problems with characterization, the production would have been less memorable, less dynamic, less authentic.”

“An immersive experience. While not interactive, the action is as close as a whisper and as affecting as a lightning strike, especially magnified with the reach-out-and-don’t-touch closeness of the cast...Villar-Hauser’s direction and staging give us tantalizing emotional and intellectual glimpses and this amazingly talented cast exposes the pulpy nerves of the psyche.”
