    1. This is actually a play that I'm doing in February. When I first read it, I didn't grasp all of the layers that it held. It has stuck with me (only partially because I'm actively working on it), and the layers keep revealing themselves, as I think about it more & more. Excellent relationship story, describing the search for authentic connection.

    2. A lovely, yet cutting treatise on romance and how it builds new bridges while burning others. Set in Wright's fictional town, two couples grapple with marital infidelity, and whether the results from such entanglements (i.e children born out of such commitments) can ever truly be happy.Worth it as a character study, and for some beautiful and painful moments between husband and wives.

    3. I just read this play a few weeks ago and I am not a fan. It was choppy and I felt like everything in this play was superficial. I feel like like there are other plays out there which give a better look into relationships. I don't think there is anything special about it.

    4. Overall, I very much liked this play. Well written, with good material in it. Something to hang onto for sure!

    5. I randomly picked up this play to read from the library. Well worth it. Similar in themes to Closer. I would love to see a production. Even better- I'd like to work on a production.

    6. Simple but lovely. Excellent for Teatro or Underground space. 2 couples, R rated. Powerful storytelling.
