    Wow. This adaptation of a classic story blew me away. Pia Wilson beautifully reveals the history of these characters in carefully-placed, conversational ways -- this play is taut, fine-tuned, razor-sharp. The transitions would be an exciting project for scene and lighting designers; and these characters are so deep and precise, they would be a joy for actors. This would be a stunning play to see staged. Totally gorgeous. I can't wait to encounter more of Wilson's work.
