Intense, Absorbing, Great writing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like small plays with a range of characters that keep you guessing as they interact. Well directed production by a talented cast.

Don't see it if you don't like a lot of dialogue or seeing characters react physically - some light moments in this Phillips play but it is not a comedy.
