How was your experience?
Although Mr & Mrs Woolsey make brief sporadic appearances, this is essentially a monologue by Myra, a young lady who focuses first her laser intelligence, then her empathy, on her job and employer. It takes place in 1919, but the topics of workaholism and workplace emotional affairs are timeless. The play seems slow-paced at first, but pulls you in, and the 90 minutes fly by (except for the seats being uncomfortable, which costs my rating the 5th star). Susan Lynskey brings an understated intensity to the role of Myra, and her portrayal, while convincingly tragic, is also delightfully suggestive, wry, and sardonic.
