Celebrated playwright Caryl Churchill examines these ideas and more through a kaleidoscope of 49 scenes – in just 90 minutes – featuring people from all walks of life, each asking the biggest of questions: What does it mean to be human? Directed by Company Member Emily Chase (Eight Nights). Taken from the website.

Embarrassing fight choreography.
Costuming is inappropriately clean for the setting.
Characters miscast, especially Billy and Bobby.
Unmotivated, static blocking, with little business for or by the players.
Emotional range of the actors never pass sitcom levels.
Pacing lacks the music written into the language.
Set, lighting, sound were all acceptable.
