When you come to this show, you better have your seat belt tightened, because it's a wild ride. The story jumps through time and place through out the play, from the warfront of Europe to the backyard of USA. The lead character Mary becomes a male army sergeant, in the blink of an eye. In spite of these challenges to your imagination, the two actor drama is beautifully performed and intelligible. It is a moving story of love and war, and the regrets we all have of missed opportunities in our lives.
The staging is unique to this production and very imaginative. I've never seen a production with a fixed prop used as effectively as the "horse" is in this play.
I don't know if they do this at every performance, but at the performance I attended, the actors came on stage after the performance and engaged the audience members who stayed in a lively discussion about the play, and about the craft of acting in general.
They are both impressive and talented people.
