The Passover Seder is used only as a vehicle to tell another tale of a dysfunctional family. The actor playing the grandfather was wonderful. The rest were OK but I got the feeling that they were just reading their way through their parts.

Very well written and well acted play. The first act was much funnier than the 2nd - the 2nd act got much heavier and was a little out of step with the 1st. Well worth seeing.

'The Face in the Reeds' is a very good new play, set at a Passover seder that cannot be completed because of the family dysfunction that comes to a boil during the course of the evening. The cast and production is first rate. I hope to see this...continued
