There is no world more intimate -- or more dangerous -- than that which exists between two people in love. Dramatic journeys into this territory are among the most powerful in theater history, from Strindberg's Dance of Death to Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? But none are half as daring as Philip Ridley's mesmerizing Tender Napalm which dives headlong into a couple's imaginary world. The play's two characters are Man and Woman -- lovers who savagely fight for the upper hand in their relationship in the face of an unnamed tragedy. Never leaving their insular world, the young couple lives out a series of wild fantasies, transcending time and space in a violent and sexually charged tapestry of what was and what is to be.

some laughs here. good leading man performance! leading lady has an annoying, screeching voice & the neighbor's british accent is terrible. innovative opening/closing. would rather watch "downton abbey" or "doc martin" on public tv.
