I thought the play was well written and well acted. While most of the characters were believable, the actions of Smith were not entirely so (I have never been in a road side motel where the desk clerk left the desk to walk me to my room) but that...continued

The actors, audacious and sagacious, make the best of mediocre material. The play has potential, but it isn't production ready.
