Interesting and gritty ma good way. The play was different, small stage,3 characters and two park benches. But, it held my attention the entire performance. Highly recommended

Talented actors in a story line that needs lots of fine tuning. There's no reason to care about any of the characters and the blackouts between scenes is absolutely annoying.
