How was your experience?
A single word to describe this show would be "devastating". Not the quality of the show, but the emotional free fall the audience is dragged through as the show progresses. The contrasting experiences of the younger and older daughter were startling--one having to portray a blissful ignorance and the other tormented by the memory of a long-gone family. The performance of the mother was probably the rawest of all the characters, and her ability to simultaneously grasp and lose touch with reality was heart wrenching. Powerful performances all around, and the intimate setting of the show allows the emotions of the actors to be sensed and shared even more strongly by the audience.
