Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Iredynski's conceit of three is far from fruitful: three characters are each given an act to dominate a religious commune in an unspecified valley of doubt. Despite a long and awkward dialogue that sets up character and situation, the first act is a primordial set of conflicts among a leader, a devastated woman, and a stranger. The second and third acts should have been combined, and the in vino veritas injection into the truth-spewing of the drunk and remorseful Hitleresque leader should have been dried out so that the real conflicts and results could emerge without shouting. The Mead Theater is so small that it was impossible to leave except at intermissions.
