This is my first time to see this theatre company's production and also for this play. I didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised that there is a theatre complex in Sacramento now. The play was disturbing and dark, but the performance was very good and sustained my interest. I thought the tempo in the beginning was a bit slow, and while I like the idea of "spirit of buried child," the pre-show performance went too long. If he came out just a few minutes before the curtain time, then he'd set up the mood, but he played nearly more than 10 minutes and people started to chat rather than listened to it as a part of the play. Still I'm very glad I had a chance to see this production.
This show is not recommended for children.
