Very strong acting by all four cast members, but the show belongs to Lawrence Grimm and Rom Barkhordar as Hackett and Othman, two men from different worlds who form a strong, if strained, bond over time. This was a humble, very simple production, with very modest production values on a very small stage. The sound design truly stood out. The two leads never off the stage, and in scenes that change in rapid-ifire succession, they artfully and humorously tackle roles easily that demand great stamina and skill. Rom's transformation into a puzzling, enigmatic man is a beautiful lesson in character acting. This actor thoroughly enjoyed all performances, but walked away savoring the dynamic chemistry of Grimm and Barkhordar.
