“The playwright doesn’t mince words,” said director Michael Thomas. “The characters say what they mean, even when it isn’t nice. The honesty of the characters really attracted me to this play.”

“The playwright gives us the viewpoints of each of the characters quickly and cleanly,” Thomas explained. "So in the audience we can begin to think about our own attitudes—am I like Tom? Am I like Carter or Jeannie or Helen? If the audience goes through this process of thinking about all the issues the play raises, then that’s a successful evening in the theatre.”
