Glen Davis’s review

I liked it. 4 stars to the set designer. Interesting script. Good casting. The nudity was gratuitous except in the context of making them believable as sterotypical "trailer trash." Don't expect sexy. Think skanky. My one suggestion for the cast would be to work on the conflicts that come up when one is faced with one's abuser, even if the abuser is a loved/feared/hated/worshipped family member. The script implies that but I didn't get a sense of that from the actress. It's difficult to imagine what would go thru the mind of someone so damaged, but that's what makes the whole thing so real and what would make her performance and the entire last scene of the play more believable. The audience was enthusiastic and engaged. I didn't find the story so shocking but the raw physicality of the play is amazing. Go see it.
