Bringing naturalism to the stage
I saw the off-Broadway production and I was in awe. The characters have a real complexity to them without saying much. The audience was allowed to experience the importance of silence between the characters and accept the fact that so much happens within silence. I was able to watch real people and their struggles, not actors.

Saw Off-Broadway production then immediately rushed to buy
Seeing the staged version brought tears to my eyes (both of laughter and of sadness). Annie Baker is a genius. If  you are looking for a script to engage you in ways you didn't think possible, get this. Such simple characters that get more complex as the play goes on. Truly beautiful.

Once was enough.
I've only read the play once and I guess the truth is...I'm not interest in reading it again.  There were little change in the characters or the plot. I understand the characters live in an alienated digital worlds but having said that there should be some change or enlightenment in some way. They basically ended up in the same alienated state they started in,  Drama is change and hopefully suprise.
The purpose  if art is to initiate change .

Unexpected Delight!
Simple staging, only three characters and seemingly ordinary dialogue . . . and yet so much happens.

Painfully delightful
Annie Baker is my new favorite playwright. On the surface, even less seems to happen than in a play by Beckett or Chekhov, yet I found myself deeply moved by these very ordinary characters and awed by Baker's ability to capture their language, their long pregnant silences, their awkward attempts to connect. I immediately bought her collected plays and decided, yes, this writer is brilliant, consistently so. Requires very skilled actors; without them, sitting through her plays would be a chore. With them, a revelation.
