Great acting, Relevant, Intense, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if you are interested in issues faced by military veterans, drug users, fractured families; fine ensemble acting in an intimate space.

Don't see it if you aren't interested in the above; don't enjoy intimate productions with limited space and scenery,

"The play strikes a fine balance between laugh-out-loud absurdity and gut-wrenching human drama...Under D’Andrea’s well-tempered direction, the excellent cast brings both humor and pathos to the characters, interweaving hilarious conversations with desperate behavior and introspective soliloquies...Entertaining and engaging new dramedy...Be sure to keep an eye out for future work by these impressive young talents."

"This play dares to show us flawed, articulate characters on the verge of destroying themselves and each other...The ensemble is strong and Dominic D’Andrea’s directing in this play is a thing of beauty. Lauren Ferebee’s writing is both kind to everyone and no one; quite a feat. It really is wonderful to see on stage people you may actually know."

“This play stuck with me in a different way than other plays. It challenged me to avoid falling into a self-destructive cycle. It is worth seeing but I am a little skeptical of some of the writing. The characters have a nearly impossible time dealing with normal life. We see a loose social circle self-destruct right before our eyes. If you can get past the fact these people's mental fortitude sometimes feels like it has the viscosity of glass, then you'll easily be able to enjoy this play.”
