The play was certainly timely and the performers were convincing, but overall I wasn't touched or moved. The play was very fast paced, the script was clever, but the characters were in a verbal tennis match, banging ideas back and forth so quickly that despite some emotional tirades I never had time to sympathize or relate. I'd like this play to last longer than 80 minutes. The characters should have a greater chance to respond to one another, to understand each others pain. Overall, I'm glad Ambler took on the play; it was a nice change of pace from the usual fare and an interesting piece. However,an average but not great night of theatre.

The plot was intense and not lite. The actors were excellant , and casted very well. The content of the play was a little more intense than I had thought. I may not have read the description well --- a 'heavy' social question done very well.
