How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
An inch deep and a mile wide. The acting in this production was quite good, unfotunately, it could not overcome the play, itself, which took a very shallow view of the Iraq war experience. We left with no new insight, no connection to the characters and a long list of "what ifs" regarding where the playwrite might have delved deeper into the war experience or the history of the Black Watch - either of which direction would have been better than this bland rehashing of themes we all can gather from a quick reading of USA Today. REALLY wanted to like it; very dissapointed we didn't.
