This is one of the two-person plays I've seen in a long time that had me rivetted. Not because the playwright (Mary Humphrey Baldridge) was sitting right beside me at the time, but because the dynamics constantly had a cat/mouse quality to it. You want to know where it's going considering where it came from. You're interested in the characters and their relation to each other. I love seeing plays that have Dan Kern in them, and Kim Zeglinski was also dramatic, seeing her sit on all the rage she contained until the end of the play, and Dan portraying her husband, unsuspecting of what she was capable of. Very stark and edgy too.
