This felt like it was written by the bastard child of Beckett and Pinter. Lots of random dialogue and lots of pauses. I stuck with it, and ended up liking it, because as a whole it does have something to say and at least something actually happens in it (unlike inn Beckett!). I'd actually like to see a production of this one, as I feel it might make a little more sense and have more impact seen, rather than read.
While the text can not really provide full justice to a play this was a great read. Thought provoking through its simplicity, I imagine this to be a fantastic play to experience.
