This play feels like Cormac McCarthy's "The Sunset Limited."

As a dramatic work that delves into the psyche of two men in a flooded New Orleans immediately post Katrina, this play gives excellent insight into the heat-driven despair of those without an evident escape.

This play is for mature audiences, for sure, but individuals who -as I am- are connected to the web of those who suffered great losses during that hurricane will definitely relate. Good drama.
