This was my first Neil LaBute play and my last. He's just not my cup of tea. I found the characters to be mere stereotypes. The actors were all good. The finale of the scene at the ballpark was not realistic to me, and neither was the very...continued

Loved this production. Neil LeBute is one of my favorite playwrights so I was pretty confident I'd enjoy the play. But the cast was a pleasant surprise. Everyone was first-rate. Highly recommended.

what a great cast!it was funny and poignant at the same time. this is the 2nd play i have seen from this company and both were fabulous with incredible actors.
the amount of profanity may offend some but it seems a natural part of the characters.
go!

First production at Playhouse I did not enjoy much. In fact, their plays have been consistently wonderful. But this one...1st: too much cliche (e.g. telling audience about lover's faults--done too often in other shows elsewhere.) That is just one...continued

I really enjoyed the play. It's quite well written and very well acted. It may not have a huge amount of depth, but it does give a little bit of food for thought (however, I'd mostly go for the entertainment value).

Acting, direction, production values are all first-rate. I don't mind "dark" comedies, but this felt a bit like 2 hours in a vicious internet chatroom. With such shallow and banal characters, it was very hard to summon up a desire to care what...continued

Wonderful play and terrific performances by all four cast members. This is what live theater so rarely is--but what we go to the theater hoping for. I am looking forward to other productions at this venue.

this is an excellent production, with excellent acting, of an excellent play, head and shoulders above anything you will see downtown at any of the smaller houses (see some of my previous reviews), and as good as or better than anything you'll see...continued

Very funny but moving exploration of the war between the sexes. Excellent acting, sets and stagecraft. Beautiful theater. Parking can be challenging. If you're coming from the East Bay you might want to consider using BART.

Snappy dialogue (ok, maybe a little too much cursing) well executed. Enjoyed it!

A friend raved about this show, so we decided to go. I really didn't care for it at all. The chemistry was lacking between the characters which made it not believable.

It was a little tiresome to listen to the arguing in the first half, but the second half picked up. The play did not have a lot of depth but had many enjoyable moments.

Relentless, intense dialog between 4 characters who will learn and change, some, but never, never escape their fates. Neil LaBute's values? Everyone is limited, trying for truth, lying, doomed to hurt others and be hurt--and this is all there...continued

The story was very interesting and every cast member was great; highly enjoyable play. I saw their second performance before a paying audience, which the director referred to as a "dress rehearsal," and there was no hint of preview about it - the...continued

I loved it. Lauren English is one of the best actors in the bay area. This is another must see performance!
