Review from Marlene DiBrito

This is an outstanding play- the writing, acting and direction.
More people should enjoy this wonderful heart wrenching play- one of the best I have seen in a long time. I understand the cast is non-equity. As an Equity member and actress of 25...continued

While the subject matter is dark you don't realize it until after all is said and done. Extremely well written and acted. Glad for the storefront space but easily worthy of a Steppenwolf or Albert stage.

It is just riveting. Impeccable playwriting, excellent acting, I even loved the set design. Difficult subject matter but it was incredibly touching, smart and elegant. Go check it out, I dare you to not be moved.

Sad tale and a bit confusing. Acting was impressive but I found it hard to appreciate the story.

It is a very depressing play - though well acted.

Review from Bob Armstrong

Really liked it for the interest it held for me in the characters and situation. As literature, however, the play was just a little too neatly tied up: too many plays and movies are already out there with this kind of nonlinear storytelling and...continued

Remarkable acting and well directed. Read the playbill first if you want an easier time understanding the time sezuences. A true piece of theater!

Review from Patricia M.

Fantastic acting and very well done. The jumping around in time could be confusing, but the slides with time and place really helped. Really need to just sit back and watch the story unfold.

We enjoyed the play. It was somewhat confusing at first, but all comes together at the end. Especially helpful the "family tree" in the Playbill.

This play starts slowly and I started to lose interest. Then about halfway thru it picked up and by the end I was totally engrossed and moved. Nice job Circle Theater!

Review from d1c1b1

This is a very engrossing play with a very surprising plot twist. It starts out difficult to follow because you are jumping in time to events in the characters' lives but things then start falling into place. This is not a happy or uplifting play...continued

Good. Moving. My only problem was in figuring out who the characters were at various times.
