I don't think I liked it. The play didn't have the real drama and left me untouched and dissatisfied. It seems like the actors, very good ones, somehow got together without proper casting or a director and just went through the motions of putting on a play. Morgan Freeman and Frances McDormant didn't work as a married couple, even though, separately they were good. Peter Gallagher became the glue that held the semblance of a play together, but, though he gave his 95%, he wasn't enough.
