Confusing, Edgy, Slow, Ambitious, Intense

See it if You aren't put off by plays that offer almost no interaction between the characters, + a slow moving plot that is sometimes hard to follow.

Don't see it if You are looking for action and humor, this play does not offer either. It is very cerebral and the storyline moves very slowly.

“The main problem with this production directed by Tana Sirois is a bothersome disconnect between the sophisticated, world-weary dialogue and the obvious youth of the three actors. They all seem at least ten years too young for their roles, let alone to be convincing members of the upper crust. M...
