I took my teenage son to see this on a cold, rainy night, and we both enjoyed it immensely. This very intimate setting (we were about 10 feet from the 2 actors) in a small space added to the power of the show. The acting was really superb, the...continued

I absolutely loved this play. It was very intense...very sad...very thought provoking. The play shows how much we hurt ourselves when we try to get revenge on someone and also shows us just how short life is. I took my 15 year old granddaughter...continued

At the macro level--the pain of couples separated by war--it worked. At the micro level--details about Harris in particular even if true in a specific sense (that is, the playwright asked someone if such and such were possible) didn't fly in a...continued
