We really enjoyed this performance which generated a discussion among the three of us (seniors) relating to the Depression, worker's rights, leaving a place of employment, collective family memory of hard times etc., so I would say that the...continued

Arthur Miller at his best.
Lively play, lots of action going on at all times.
Well cast, actors were quite accomplished.
Scenic design was great, loved all the old-time props and decorations.
Highly recommend, go see for yourself!

I didn’t hv much expectation prior seeing this play honestly…I figured I’ve got nothing to loose w/such of a bargain tix price offered by GoldStar. However, I'm so glad I made it! The casting of all 11 actors is just excellent! I’m usually very...continued

I liked this play. The acting was great from all the actors. Only one thing didn't look real. The workers looked nicely dress to be working in a car parts shop.

Excellent Play - Everyone who loves the theater shouldn't let this one get away! An Arthur Miller play brilliantly done & rarely performed, with excellent acting, is a must see.

This Arthur Miller play was somewhat disappointing. It is in one act with two scenes, each one about a Monday, one in 1933 and the other in 1934. What we go was an unfocused play that came across more like diary pages from the two days. However,...continued

The performances were fine but I'm not sure why the play was written. It did not seem to have a point or direction or anything specific to say. Also, a pet peeve but there it is, none of the actors seemed to know much of anything about working in...continued

Excellent acting by all. The play itself however was not particularly compelling. I do applaud the Ruskin theater group for their generally high caliber performances

Anyone loving theater cannot afford to miss an Arthur Miller play that is not often performed. Especially when it is brilliantly done like this one. I went back a second time just to see the final gut-wrenching scene by Gus (Richard Leighton).

I'm not sure why this dated and boring Miller play was revived by the group and overacting didn't help any.

I enjoyed this play. The acting was fine, the staging was good. The set was fantastic, and the costumes were great! My only issue was with the story itself; it was a bit unfocused. A story of Arthur Miller's workplace before he went to college,...continued

This play and these performances were fantastic. I felt like I was in this dusty garage with an intriguing cast of characters. I loved this play!

Depression-era play involving a large cast of characters - immigrant, drunk, nervous switchboard operator, idealistic college-bound narrator - all good performers. The authentic-looking auto-parts warehouse set was wide but not very deep and so...continued

A terrific play (well Arthur Miller, duh!), wonderful casting and acting, lots of action and plenty to think about. The Ruskin continues to impress! It's my favorite small theatre.

This less well known play of Miller's is a gem. There's not much of a plot, no burning issues or conflicts to be resolved, just every day events and personal conflicts at a business environment, yet it holds your rapt attention every moment. The...continued

Extremely well done. Not much to argue about with the writing as it is an Arthur Miller play. The acting was first rate, the set was also first rate with exceptional attention to detail. A fulfilling theater experience, which is getting...continued

A bunch of actors and actresses running and screaming on stage. Didn't like the plot either. I am glad I got free tickets.

I have to say the play itself is indeed dated with little relevance for me to care for the characters and get into the story. The performers are all very talented, enthusiastic and energetic, however, acting is definitely over the top. One...continued
