Erratic, Cliched, Near-miss, Interesting, Funny

See it if A three-person play about interweaving lives, interior monologues, insecurities, and power struggles sounds interesting.

Don't see it if spectacle is important; or if you think there should be a compelling reason to present a work as a stageplay as opposed to other media.

Also The script is inconsistent, veering from the poignant to the ludicrous... Read more Read less

Pretentious, Detached, Uninteresting

See it if You like stilted wacky third person dialogue. You think surgeons are drunk narcissists. You like good actors doing dreadful material.

Don't see it if If infidelity upsets you. Basically if you have other options.

Banal, Slow, Poor performances, Unimaginative staging, Excruciating

See it if you enjoy actors delivering monologues without interacting with each other. The play takes on a monotonous tone.

Don't see it if you enjoy watching actors interact. Also, if you are sensitive to poor British accents that are constantly being dropped.

Tedious, Pointless, Disappointing, Insipid, S-l--o---w

See it if you have a friend in it or are a neophyte looking to round out your knowledge of theatre, good and bad.

Don't see it if You value your time and brain cells.

Also Who would have thought sex, adultery and infidelity could be boring! I... Read more Read less

Banal, Cliched, Excruciating

See it if Utterly pretentious as three successful bored white characters perform monologues that occasionally overlap while sporting British accents

Don't see it if Acting class' second project first semester is the best description for this WORDY piece. The audience is the loser at this battle.

Banal, Slow, Super boring, No dialogue, only monologue, Excruciating

See it if you are ok with 3 actors monologuing & never interacting. Or if you're not bothered by terrible British accents, & a disjointed non-story.

Don't see it if you're looking for sparks and chemistry; this was so amateurish and just... really terrible. The actors were trying, but this didn't work.

"An artfully rendered midlife crisis...The three actors really know how to make their monologues exciting and active...Director Tana Sirois stages the play with an appropriately frosty elegance...Self-centered and unlikable, our three characters nevertheless prove to be competent vessels for Barr...

"Hamilton, Threadgold, and Sullivan, have at the script with considerable energy, but, under Sirois' direction, all three deliver relentlessly angst-filled performances that only accentuate the script's risible, all-purpose solemnity...No matter how much the dialogue labors, it never seems to con...

“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...

"An effective and fun piece of theater storytelling...Though the trappings may feel pretentious to some and soap opera-y to others, the work finds a very fine balance of understated behavior and vivid descriptions, keeping the story in a genuine place, never bogging down the pacing...While the ev...
