A fine cast who managed this complex play very well. You come away not knowing exactly who, if anybody, is telling the truth--very thought provoking.

The acting was superb. The play was trivial, contrived and not believable. This is one of Shepard's bad plays, even though he writes very good, thoughtful plays.

While the acting was good, I didn't enjoy the storyline at all. I was relieved it was only 75 minutes. I don't need to spend my leisure time watching dysfunctional people fight.
