What I liked

I loved the transitions from past to present and how fully committed each character was to the multiple roles they played. Upon seeing the play, the title, which I related to Psalms 23:4, put me in the mind set of protection for all people who find themselves in a dark place or situation regardless of what your beliefs are. During the play, there were several displays of protection from the characters to one another, reminding us of the power we have to stick together and care for one another.

What I didn't like

Even though I connected the title to the play after seeing it, which could very well be inaccurate, the description of the play and the title didn’t connect with me initially.

My overall impression

The play is beautifully written and directed with characters who are witty, fun, thought-provoking and real. The dialogue is comprised of genuine conversations you hear daily from those you might label liberal or conservative, giving humanity to both even if you don’t agree with their choices. Most of the actors play duo polar opposite roles, committing fully to every word and action. Great piece evoking laughter and tears.
