Interesting plot, fine acting (overall). Script was weakened by paying too much attention to the fishing metaphor, and not enough to the real theme of economic desperation. Lead character's descent from lovable uncle to violent vigilante was hard...continued

Very good acting with a great presentation of today's economic ills among middle class America.
Sad and tragic ending.

Well done! Loved the staging! Not a bad seat in the house. Very intimate theatre setting and a very thought provoking play.
