Though it takes a while to get into the idiom, this is a powerful play about people who seemingly have no real voice. It plays with what you even think you know about the characters and their stereotypes. Brilliantly written. Sometimes funny....continued

The acting was outstanding! It was like you were watching the plot unfold in real life. That said, I was a bit disappointed in the amount of swearing that this show contained. I am far from a prude but this was over the top. The man walking...continued

The play presents a sad picture of lives that will keep on being unsuccessful, lonely and fraught because none of the characters have much or any insight about themselves, and while the playwright has compassion and affection for them, he offers...continued

This was a terrific play and production. Writing is very thoughtful and realistic. Ending was satisfying (not Hollywood). Acting was truly superb. Worth going out of your way to see. Good venue for Goldstar tickets (small theater, all seats...continued

A great show with excellent actors. If you haven't moved yourself too far out of real life, it takes no time to immerse yourself into the "look and feel" of the play. Don't try to box the characters into corners, or come with preconceived...continued

It was a small initimate place but the chairs were somewhat comfy. The play , the actors, the delivery, the timing were impressive. I enjoyed every minute of the show and the boyfriend leaving his hat in the same chair the other guy did = brilliant!

A terrific play - funny, romantic (for all the four-letter words), touching, beautifully acted, with one total surprise (which I won't reveal). Don't be put off by the title. It creates a real world, with people who have all the contradictions...continued

Better than Mamet in raw language, this play stands the notions of ethical relativism and a moral compass on their heads as two couples couple-- in various permutations and combinations-- while a flaming "married" man describes a friend capable of...continued

I did not know what to expect upon entering to see this play what captured my attention was the title so I just had to see what it was about. My opinion of this stage play it was ridiculously funny, unexpected, and wickedly smart.

This was a terrific play. It was funny, and sad at the same time. The playwright's skill at dialogue made what could have been 'just the same old story' into a moving theater experience. One of the best I've seen. The actors were all superb.
