Edgy, Indulgent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Nasty

See it if Ruthless oil land acquirers meet in a remote trailer. Older generation fears being replaced by younger. Cruel business, cruel people.

Don't see it if Foul disrespectful language from unlikable characters. Not believable that locals are so stupid, or that so much transpires so quickly.

Great writing, Edgy, Great staging, Clever, Intelligent

See it if you'd like to spend an entertaining time in a trailer with 3 characters, except for a couple minutes mimed outside of it, in a twisted tale.

Don't see it if you do not like rough language argumentative or immoral characters.

November 8th, 2018

"Playwright Adam Seidel crafts a nifty three-hander where everything and everyone is not as it seems...Deftly directed by Valentina Fratti, the actors are given the freedom to unwrap layers...Grimes goes deep as the seasoned woman who knows how to hold her own and get ahead in a man's world...LuPone portrays a tough guy on the outside, but stuns with the revelation of a scared vulnerable man just under the surface. Ledbetter strikes a nice balance."

“Skillfully constructed...Fratti gave the actors room...to show us not only the complexity of their relationships but also key moments in their characters...You’ll be drawn into the piece through its humor and Seidel’s well-delineated dialogue, building characters quickly..Here, in this tiny space where nothing can be hidden or faked, is a celebration of the art of telling a small story with a big emotional message through excellent acting of a terrific script.”
