How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I went to this play because I had attended "The Electric Ballroom" and really liked it---so thought that this 'sibling' play may be interesting also--There were amazing performances by all of the actors--and there was a similar theme--the dysfunction and fragility of families--and the variety of personal viewpoints about various nodal events in these families--how easily history gets skewed in the re-telling--the isolation and anguish of each member of these families, the paranoia and cruelty that erupts, shown especially as physical violence between the male members of the family system--it's all quite sad and thought-provking.--Walsh's use of language was impressive- and powerful
