HAD TO READ FOR ENGLISH LIT ... SO GLAD I DID!
Yes. The actors were so great. I knew nothing about this story and I am so glad I didn't. The ending was very surprising and emotional ... I really felt the pain of the characters.

Their voices showed every nuance of the emotion of the play. I really
The ending... wasn't expecting it. The actors were superb. I can see why this play won the Circle Award for Best Play.

Yes - very well acted and presented.
The horrors of death that hang around this story while the rest of the world moves forward ignorant of the problems caused by cutting corners. The paraphrased line of "I did this for you kids" are always the famous last words uttered by some dumb fool too short sighted to do the right thing.

Broke it up over 3 sittings. Very good.
