Unfortunately neither particularly good writing, plot development or character evolution makes this a rather boring and superficial theatrical experience. Acting is broad and obvious so one does not care about anyone in the drama or what happens. A waste of good talent is always unfortunate. I would rather have seen these actors have the opportunity to interact with one another and grow over the course of the play.

They may be dressed slightly differently from day to day, but they are the same greed, jealousy and loneliness inspired displays. These displays make for some phenomenal scenes and performances but are difficult to absorb... http://heresheisboys.com/2013/08/21/the-old-friends-review/
