None of these plays are quite as good as Norman's brilliant "'Night, Mother" but they all have their own positive qualities. My favorite was "Getting Out," which used some very interesting staging ideas to show someone plagued by her past. My least favorite was "Third and Oak," which had good individual moments but as a whole was rambly and disconnected. The final two in the anthology are both solid but not outstanding.
