Slow, Thought-provoking, Good acting, Intense

See it if Historically compelling melodrama; mash-up of Chayefskian kitchen sink realism & Strangelovian nuclear paranoia. Powerful acting by leads.

Don't see it if Extremely slow & verbose first act nearly implodes piece; jump starts with arrival of abusive husband/vet Burt (explosive Dan Yaiullo)

Ambitious, Edgy, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Relevant

See it if you enjoy the tension that fear can create with the ones you love.

Don't see it if you have not lived through the Cuban Missle Crisis or do not have an appreciation for the state of the Cold War world.

November 18th, 2016

"As destruction comes to seem more certain, the characters aim their worries at each other, revealing long-boiling resentments, particularly the strain and abuse that defines the central marriage. Director Joe Battista and the committed cast let the drama run excitingly wild — by the end, the floor is coated in the spaghetti and milk from a dinner gone wrong, the remnants of a family in pieces but still pushing on."
