I laughed while reading this from beginning to end.  I liked the characters and would enjoy directing this piece.  The ending was fine with me.  I would like the audience to go away believing what they want to believe.  Couldn't put it down, definitely will pass it on to play selection committee.

I felt that this play didn't draw me in right away and I like the idea but I would definitely say that the ending disappointed me. Which is a bummer because I love this playwright's other works. My favorite by Theresa Rebeck is The Butterfly Collection - that play drew me in way more than this did.

Plots was but was disappointed in the resolution.  Think it was a sort of deus ex machina, or more perhaps no resolution at all.  Do we assume he gets away with the theft, no problem?  Not looking for
a happy ending,but this left it up in the air for me.
