Hoped for a good show but was disappointed. Not a fan... Found myself bored and annoyed with the story and some of the acting - wanting to leave after 30 minutes but trapped by an intermission-free performance. Regardless, a nice evening out....continued

Description

First-time parents Nick and Colby have given birth to Cassie, a baby that is not at all who they believed she would be. While Nick earnestly attempts to bond with the baby, Colby is horrified, ambivalent and humorously hostile, calling the baby a “freak,” a “creature” and a “smudge.” A reality they never imagined confronts their expectations of parenthood, and their marriage begins to crumble. At times funny, at times achingly sad, Smudge is a play about the disasters we don’t plan for, and how we come to accept them.
