A raw and modern take on a classic

This play is written with earthy language and thankfully, this cast performs it that way. Specifically, the character played by Amy Brenneman is portrayed with realistic grunt and not in the wishy washy way such female characters have been portrayed in the past. The in-jokes enjoyed by the brothers at the beginning are challenging to follow at first. Listen a couple of times for maximum benefit.

True Tragedy

A rollercoaster of greed, lust, and contempt. However, I would have liked it better if the actions were included.

Story is contrived, though performed great.

All the conflicts are contrived and weak, though performance is outstanding. Reminded me of a patchwork blanket. I wonder why it was rated so high.
