All around fine cast, except that I felt the Dan Gerard character, played by Jeffrey Stubblefield, was an extraneous and unneeded insertion in to the play. Rachel Noll, as Ellen Adams, gave a nice unforced acting effort, as did Edward Edwards as Carl Brewer.
I felt that the writing was not up to the monumental effort expended by the formidable Brian Kerwin, onstage for the whole play.
