I saw this play when it premiered at Victory Gardens Theatre in Chicago, before it went Off-Broadway. It was an amazing performance. I grabbed the play off the shelf the instant I saw it and re-read it in a couple hours. As I read I had the echoes of the actors' performances in my head, so my opinion of the play is heavily influenced by the fantastic staging I saw a few years ago. But still--it's a great read.

An insightful retelling of the American dream that embraces the idea as much as it critiques it. The characters are instantly likable, and the jokes are genuinely funny. Concise, character driven drama at its finest. I'm not at all surprised it won as many awards as it did. It would be a beast to put on, but I'd still love to see it performed some day, or better yet play a part in producing it. Highly, highly recommended.

Étonnant, différent. Mais pas à la hauteur. Il ne se dit pas grand chose dans cette pièce. Probablement un beau projet de mise en scène, sans plus. L'histoire ne reflète pas une réalité québécoise. Casting difficile à prévoir.
This is a play that will be staged later this month at TheatreWorks. I wanted to read it before seeing it. I did not develop much of a connection to the characters. I hope that the play helps me connect.
