This is soooooo boring! Lack of tension, lack of drama, lack of plot, lack of substance.

When you read something or watch something you hope to take something away from it. You learn something or feel something. That is not present for me, here. These plays are so pointless. What was the point? The only play worth reading is Boy's Life. The rest are actual literal trash. I regret ever picking this up.
