    In this quietly poignant play, Ms. Wardally uses gender roles to deftly explore the murky boundary between supporting someone else's dream and completely sacrificing your identity in service to it. She expertly uses subtext and humor to show the joys and pains in the older characters' marriage. Their struggle to encourage their daughter to pursue her dreams while accepting their own failures resonated with me the most. This play makes a powerful statement about how we embrace opportunity. I look forward to seeing it onstage.

    Mr. Wilder offers a fresh perspective on the urban experience in this play. The juxtaposition of vivid fantasy and harsh reality combined with the empathetic treatment of the characters transform the play into a powerful statement on the limits of escapism, even in the most bleak of circumstances. I highly recommend The Leftovers.
