    2. Chiming in to add a positive review, to counteract a negative one I have no problem with the negative one, mind you, its points are perfectly valid but not my opinion I adore Guare s work, his dialogue, his sense of character This play doesn t work all that well on the page It really needs to be performed by three very game actors, because so much of it is deliberately swirling, monologue based, and ultimately all in the moments between lines as much as the lines themselves I fell in love with [...]
