Over the top humor that is sure to make you laugh, in spite of yourself! The play uses the technique of the actors speaking their "kvetching" subtext to the audience, while keeping the guize of civility to eachother. This is not an easy technique to pull off, but these actors did it beautifully. Particular standouts were Paul Stroili as Hal, who brought the house down in one kvetching monologue to the audience, which built to a feverish climax. In the second act Dale Morris stole the show as George, probably the cheesiest businessman I've ever seen. His voice and demeanor reminded me of a bizarre cross between Lionel Barrymore and Strother Martin. He made me laugh so hard at times, I actually had to choke it back, so as not to disturb other people in the audience. Be ready for dark humor and a touch of courseness. But it's all in good fun!

Quotes & Highlights
“Hilariously intricate dialog very well executed by an exceptionally talented cast. Nothing to kvetch about in this production - go see it!” —performingartslive.com
“Steven Berkoff’s abrasive, but hilariously on-target look at people who kvetch their way through life is being given a skillfully sharp production by SeaGlass Theatre … kvetch is never easy to take — and a difficult one for the actors to pull off, but SeaGlass does it with sublime artistry, with laughs aplenty.” —BroadwayWorld.com
“The best show I’ve seen this year … I will see it again, and I urge anyone who values a living theater to do the same. … completely absorbing … extraordinarily funny … Berkoff and director Ian Vogt wield a handful of brutal devices to enhance dynamics already at work in this play, gears and wheels of love, honor, identity, faith, all whirling and pulling at one another until I expected to see arms and legs come off these actors’ bodies." -Stage Happenings
“A scaldingly funny masterpiece … sidesplitting, remarkably compelling … sensational … a comic touchdown." —LA Stage Times
