Review by DAVID MACDOWELL BLUE

What I liked

The performances, rhythm and balance of the whole piece.

What I didn't like

Honestly it feels a bit short for the subject matter. Which is a very personal preference so take it with a grain of salt.

My overall impression

features four characters (two of them playing multiple roles) is the simple but profound tale of a man and woman who fall in love, staying that way. It might seem nostalgic but is not, not really. Neither is it sentimental. Genuine pain they experience does not make it sad, nor do the often funny/silly antics at the heart of this love story make it a comedy. Just a simple but profound story. It explores why maybe we’ve put so much investment in the idea of romantic love. Because when it does work, when two people do click and when they make the commitment of staying with each other through disappointment, confusion, betrayal, tension, boredom, forgiveness, etc. then it becomes very much the stuff of dreams. The cast does a fine job, while the script captures those moments of deceptive complexity with a light but not sugary touch.
