How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This play was much better to Samuel Hunter's earlier, A Bright New Boise, that I enjoyed. While there were a few two many overly broad metaphors about whales and water and life, the story did make me think, and also had a wonderful dramatic buildup to the end. The lead was absolutely superb, and the nurse Liz, seemed to have been written and was played as if so, by Laurie Metcalf. The three other roles were all reasonably well-acted. The set was convincing, lighting good, as was sound.
