Review from Kathleen S.

Excellent production. Not only was the script great, but the acting was outstanding.
The small theatre makes all seats good for viewing stage.

Review from Goldstar Member

a very intense show. some content could be triggering. they did it so well, the performers and crew staged it with great care, they succeeded in keeping the audience willing to be present with their story. quite powerful, recommended.

Review from Renee S.

Terrific acting by 2 wonderful women in tough roles about a very difficult subject. Great set. Fantastic show that had us riveted throughout, with slow revelation of a far more serious situation with a 5th grade boy than we had anticipated. The...continued

Review from No name

It doesn't matter that the two surprises in the play are fairly easy to predict. This play allows two very interesting female actors to show their chops. It takes discipline to allow for silence and a slow pace and these two actors make it look...continued

Review from the reflective viewer

Two women in a classroom discuss an incident, one evasive one probing.. It's all in the acting and timing and writing. Structure of a mystery and discovery. One of those plays that only works once I suspect but linear and one sided though it...continued

It is an amazing play for both the subject matter and acting. Talking about acting, all o us were blown away by the emotional intensity, skills and just great acting. The actress who played the mother has such presence that we hang on to every...continued

Review from Roadrunner

Great acting; intense script. 2 actors carried the whole play; I don't want to say much more, as it will give away the plot. Definitely see it: a quality production.

Review from MARINDOC

Stage setting was quite effective, I felt in my front row seats (Thank you Red Velvet Goldstar!) that I was part of the classroom. Acting was superlative, plot was good, not great.

Review from David

A very good play with two strong actresses. Don't know how they can do two productions in one day. As a retired teacher, the play certainly hit close to home.

Review from Sue T.

This is a fantastic, extremely intense 70-minute production. It's best to go in knowing as little as possible and just be blown away by all the twists and turns. Both of the actors were absolutely first rate. This is a play I won't soon forget.

Review from Betty Nudelman

Gripping play with 2 actors. The Mystery unfolds slowly until the audience discovers what the whole problem was about. The 2 women were terrific in their roles.

Review from Victoria S.

I thought the acting was brilliant. But many of the audience members were very angered by this play. Some thought it was boring in places. I thought the playwright should have done some research in legal obligations of school districts. ...continued

Review from Emanuel J.

Way too slow, lacks energy till the last part, need to replace the teacher with a more dynamic actress.

Review from Jack Halton

Tracy stays out of this and just let's two fine actors go at it. I wished the obvious had been held back, but the rest was very worthwhile.

There was a Q&A after play...which I thought was a great addition.

Very enjoyable performance. The theater is very small and although our seats were on side, had great view of performance.

Review from Bellah Zee

The actors were fantastic. It was a well produced show. The topic matter was not light fare. It will drive you to have the 'after discussion'. It received a standing O. Whoa.
