Well acted, well paced. Set design is spot on, and even the lighting dimming slowly in the scene between the brothers, played by Josh Marcantel and Alexei Bondar, works to great effect. Marcantel is perfectly understated as we follow his character through the twisting plot, while Bondar does some heavy lifting humanizing a difficult role that in the hands of a lazier actor could have become caricature.

This was a first class production of an amazing play. Bob Carter's performance is worth the ticket alone. You will not find a better production of this play elsewhere. Highly recommended.
