I once began this play while attending college, and for some inexplicable reason that I cannot even now recall, I couldn't even finish the play...I just didn't like it; I put it down, quietly chalked it up to another pass-over, and that was that. Maybe I lacked the focus, the temerity to understand its impact, I don't know...but flash forward four years later, and I now feel that I understand the play's power, its scope. Though not a perfect tragedy, it is well written, intimate, and humanely flawed. Here's to second chances.
