PREVIOUS REVIEW
The New York Times reviewer called the play "absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny,” and wrote: "The artificiality of the acting games just emphasizes the naturalness of the characters’ real lives and feelings. Group members pose as trees, beds and baseball gloves. They perform emotional scenes using only gibberish words."
