Great actors and fast paced. I found the play a bit repetitious, but
I would still recommend it, however, we felt the theater itself it's a total fire trap. No announces were made about exits. You are in a basement with seemingly one way out! the...continued

It's a light comedy that did a good job of capturing how spouses can have a love/hate relationship. Perfect 70-minute length for my attention span.

Small theater so there are no bad seats. Excellent set design. Well-cast. Players acquitted themselves well. I very much enjoyed the performance.

Strong, entertaining rendition of God of Carnage. I attended with a little trepidation due to an unimpressive Shelton rendition of Beyond Therapy some years ago. I'm glad I gave them another chance. Recommended.

Excellent show, great acting, very enjoyable evening. The show is both serious and humorous, and just the right length, 70 minutes long. We were very glad we saw it.

Fun play with lots of laughs. Unexpected plot with constantly changing loyalties.

Acting was good, not great, but the play was so good, it didn't matter.

The performance was okay. Acting was a bit stiff, forced, and over played. The venue was nice.

Wow! What a great show. Everybody was perfectly cast and did an exceptional job fleshing out their characters. Really well done in every way; the direction was spot on and the set was beautiful. Congratulations to everyone involved.

Matt Shelton and Jenn Bates were great, but the other two (Norman Gee and CAra McKelvey-Phillips) were less effective as they seemed to "overact" and it made it very distracting in such an intimate setting. It should have felt more like we were...continued

It was okay. Last year, I saw the movie and thought "this probably works better as a play" so I was curious to see this work in a live theater. I found myself looking at my watch about 30 minutes into the production. (Luckily it was only 70...continued

Attended a performance on the 4th of July. Though the audience was sparse because it was the holiday, the cast put on a great performance of this interesting play. Well worth it!
