Clever, Great staging

See it if you enjoy an unusual staging of a show. Watch a couple trying to settle into new home being met with ghosts of former lovers and parents.

Don't see it if you do not like being mostly in the dark(literally) for most of the show. I wish they hadn't given out flashlights to highlight characters.

Quirky, Slow, Ambitious, Funny

See it if You need to fill an hour in your agenda. It's over quickly on your watch but seems to drag on needlessly,

Don't see it if If you have already seen enough mediocrity this month.

Entertaining, Absorbing, Funny, Uneven, Creative

See it if you're looking for a small experimental production with some humor and theme of ghosts from our past. Creative use of darkness & flashlights

Don't see it if underdeveloped writing/production and uneven acting. Some elements did come across amateur, but the concept and creativity makes up for it.

Clever, Funny, Fluffy, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy romantic comedies. You can laugh at being reminded of the "ghosts" of your past relationships.

Don't see it if You don't like the dark or want a more developed show. The writing needs some work, but overall it was a fun hour. Read more

Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Clever, Fun / refreshing, Resonant

See it if you'd be interested in new/experimental theater. Clever (audience participation w/use of flashlights), staged almost completely in the dark.

Don't see it if you're a mean one, Mr Grinch. Very funny, thought-provoking, & VERY RESONANT. Ghosts in our day-to-day lives? Come on, we've all been there! Read more

Fuck Yeah Great Plays
August 7th, 2017

“Here’s where Marina and Nicco’s conceit shines: the audience chooses who they want to focus on and when...It’s a clever way to show the way our pasts can come back to haunt us at the most inopportune times…With the lack of illumination, the actors have to fight hard to keep the attention and flashlights on them, and they do an excellent job. Marina and Nicco’s comedic background brings a touch of whimsy to two of the greatest human fears: the dark and commitment.”

“A sharply crafted piece of comedic, supernatural, existential puzzle work…To the writing duo’s credit, the lack of clarity only serves to deepen the mystery…It’s worth noting this novel production value never approaches, or even flirts with, cheesy contrivance…Effectively staged by Aeed, whose direction is especially crisp in moments of tense confrontation, the uniformly strong cast doesn’t seem phased by shifts in status bestowed upon them by the random attention of a flashlight.”
