How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Martin McDonough, my really , truly favorite playwright really packed a punch with this play. It is true that the set might have better shown the claustrophobia of the player's experience; however, the words and actions, so finely calibrated the bottom-line of the human condition that we are forced to confront the capacity of each of us for evil as well as good. The last scene with Maureen staring into a black future was haunting.
