While the subject matter is dark you don't realize it until after all is said and done. Extremely well written and acted. Glad for the storefront space but easily worthy of a Steppenwolf or Albert stage.

It is just riveting. Impeccable playwriting, excellent acting, I even loved the set design. Difficult subject matter but it was incredibly touching, smart and elegant. Go check it out, I dare you to not be moved.

Sad tale and a bit confusing. Acting was impressive but I found it hard to appreciate the story.

Remarkable acting and well directed. Read the playbill first if you want an easier time understanding the time sezuences. A true piece of theater!

Fantastic acting and very well done. The jumping around in time could be confusing, but the slides with time and place really helped. Really need to just sit back and watch the story unfold.

We enjoyed the play. It was somewhat confusing at first, but all comes together at the end. Especially helpful the "family tree" in the Playbill.

Good. Moving. My only problem was in figuring out who the characters were at various times.
