    1. I was handed a copy of this play to read from a director who wants me to audition for a couple of parts. Reading it (without spoiling the ending) gave me the idea that it was a cross between Much Ado About Nothing and Rabbit, Run. Dietz uses post-modernist theatrical techniques throughout--tricky to do well but if correct, it can be quite moving and I think it essential to have a strong actress to play the lead part, Becky. Performed, it could be a dynamic play: strong potential.


    2. Man, what a bummer!! I am a big fan of Dietz's work, and this starts out gangbusters but just fizzles by the end. It makes a very strange tonal switch that really pulls the rug out from under the main character and almost robs her of her status as main character. Lots of great scene snippets, though, for those in the market.


    3. I loved the theatrical use of breaking the fourth wall but I don't think this playwright decided whether to make this a comedy or a drama. Lost it's energy in the 2nd act as well as the connection to characters. The jury's still out on this one.
