Hard to hear/follow at first. Very good play, once story gets going. Best bet is to be in centermost seats...theater is in semi-round, so in side sections actors often are faced away from you. Plus at least one actor is deaf, so his speech can be difficult to follow, especially if you can't see his face. That said, good play that deals with issues most of us haven't given much thought to; very well staged and played.
