The first act dragged a lot. The second was much better. The actors definitely put their all into it!

It was well done. Strong acting. I thought it was about 5-7 minutes too long.

Very well done with strong character actors in a character-driven story. Script may be a problem because it's a novel being used as natural stage dialog. Many times I just didn't believe people talk the way they do here.

Main character "Author"...continued
