A tight play...The characters were familiar; the dynamics a bit more exaggerated and grotesque than your everyday disfunctional family. I (and the rest of the audience) laughed out loud, all through it. From what I understand about the author, unlike his others, this play actually ended on a upbeat note… Everybody, even the dead father, seemed to come to the end of the play with a new-found freedom and peace. Each of the 4 actors was outstanding, as was the set!
