What a rich, vibrant world, artfully realized. This play doesn't just take on the "issue" of workplace violence, although there is nothing wrong with that. It searches our souls at work where so much of life happens.
From the opening that captures the chaos of the aftermath to the powerful ending focused on Danielle, there are many well earned surprises. We rocket through the absurd to the surreal to the theater of cruelty. When Ed ends an encomium to the victims with "Danielle, who is, of course, a whore." I almost leapt out of my chair. Excellent stuff. ”
