    I loved this play. It's sci-fi, it's got a strange concept I can totally buy into, and two characters that show just how hard it is to adhere to rules of contact and communication. It would be easy for the characters to screw up what they are attempting, and while I can't speak for anyone else, I found myself silently rooting for Gulati to succeed. You will too.
