    I wanted to like thus play very much, and I don t deny that Eno has real talent, but I ultimately found this to be a disappointment As a sort of post modern riff on Our Town, I can see what Eno is trying to do, but there is so much speechifying and vague poetry where there could have been deeper character development The ending is, nonetheless, deeply touching.

    This was the worst evening I ve ever spent in the theatre True story This is one of those works that talks about Big and Profound Things while failing to actually be either of those things.

    my beef with will eno continues but some of the dust on my shoes is from outer space most of the rest is dead human skin, as a line, kind of slaps.

    Speed read this, so absolutely open to charges of misinterpretation As always, Enio is a master at wordplay and making nonsense out of the nonsense that is most of our attempts to communicate with other people I also haven t read Our Town, so know I might be missing quite a bit That being said, despite whatever its intentions may have been, I found this to be nihilistic and slightly condescending about the daily futility of human life just a bunch of people spinning on hamster wheels without Speed read this, so absolutely open to charges of misinterpretation As always, Enio is a master at wordplay and making nonsense out of the nonsense that is most of our attempts to communicate with other people I also haven t read Our Town, so know I might be missing quite a bit That being said, despite whatever its intentions may have been, I found this to be nihilistic and slightly condescending about the daily futility of human life just a bunch of people spinning on hamster wheels without connecting or understanding what s going on Which may be accurate, but isn t a vision for the world I m looking for right now

    Beautiful, poetic language from all the characters A polyphonic set of vignettes about the wonder, ridiculousness, solitude and strangeness of life on this planet I laughed out loud several times, the dialogue is very sharp and witty.That being saidall the characters are pretty similar and all observations they make are consistently wistful and melancholy Felt a little flat, although I m very glad to have read it.

    This play is full of every little thing I am fascinated by It reads like a modern day Our Town That, combined with Vonnegut s Breakfast of Champions seems like a perfect smash up of all things existential, horrible, beautiful, mysterious, and mundane Quirky, odd, delightful My only negative is pace, but even that would be an interesting challenge of staging the show How might it contribute to the play s effect and message

    Not quite as deep as it thinks it is Starts to ask questions, but doesn t really get anywhere That being said, I enjoyed it.m and would pay to see it on stage I really enjoyed this line JOHN DODGE Yeah You get the mail, it s a clothes catalog Maybe you leaf through it, maybe think, Hey, I could buy those pants Then you think, But then it s just be me, again, in a different pair of pants Then you go out and walk around and that s your day, time for bed.

    That which is profound is a caricature of profundity.I m tempted to think that this is better seen than read, but I honestly don t know how much seeing this play live would add to the experience It s very much a play about language, sound, existence, so perhaps actually hearing the lines spoken would have made thisenjoyable But in all truth, this felt like it was trying really, really hard to say something awe inspiring, but that s all it was An attempt.Did not enjoy.

    Really 3.5 a great philosophical play about life Meant to be seen Great ending, but Eno tries to do too much in the play and the narrative power is lost Interesting characters supporting characters we d to be fleshed out
