Great venue, horrible play!

"Rest" appears to be a leftist idea of both an important, social issue and what a true Christian really is. Amidst volleys of shouting, foul language, and conversations about masturbation and pornography, the play...continued

Came expecting a light comedy; left elevated by a daunting glimpse at the incalculable, unimaginable complexity of life and love.

Not a false note. Great character development, acting, and direction. Full of pathos and, yes, humor! We are not only transported to Idaho but to the whole human experience! Kudos to this great playwright.

PERFECT seat and wonderful performance. It was a great play. Now, I wish I'd seen "The Whale" by the same author.
I look forward to the next Goldstar offer.
Thanks.

The play was good and occasionally funny. The two young women, Jenny and Faye, didn't articulate or speak up enough to be heard clearly. We could hear the other characters, so it wasn't the acoustics. More could have been written about the way...continued
