As a geek that I sometimes am, the trials of relationships can be a bit technical, as brought out by this play. If you are not geeky enough you may not understand, or see, that romance is in this play. The events of the play can make you feel uncomfortable, or awkward, which I believe it was intended to do. Not all relationships are built equal. Some carry a lot of baggage compared to others. Some carry very different baggage, compared to others. For this pair of 40 something geeky co-workers, I believed everything they went through.
Oh, and Spoiler Alert!!! I do give some of the plot away here. Go see the performance please!
Meet Frank's parents. Julie listens as the parents go on about things, while Frank just sits quietly hoping it will all end soon.
Julie (Helen Young) had real tears going on in this scene. Julie showed feelings, empathy, toward Frank's tragedy, and personal guilt. Although, I think any other person would have been running in the other direction.
