Uneven acting and writing, but the good stuff is really good. Unfortunately, the lead actress was one of the weakest links. Both she and her dialogue seemed very stiff... continued

I don't know which was worse, the script or the acting. The prosecutor was so bad he was almost laughable. Only two actors, the defense atty and the hospital assistant, should be allowed on a stage.

This play is worth seeing and the acting was very good by all of the cast. Be prepared to stay in your seat until the 15 minute break as it is a court room scene. Interesting and definitely worth the Goldstar ticket

My husband and I found the play very interesting. We learned much about Cryonics. The cast of actors were terrific. Very well done!

Interesting intellectual, moral discussion. Not so good as theatre. A lot of melodrama in the writing, acting and directing.

The acting was wonderful. How DO they remember all those lines??? Some members of the audience are chosen to decide the verdict. The theater is small and intimate and... continued

Half of the performances were strong - half - not so much. If we cared whether the defendant got off or not it might have worked but there was no reason to feel for her.... continued

A stimulating play that challenges its audience and dares to confront the touchy subject of cryonics which will someday be more than mere science fiction. Presented in... continued
