OMG. We stopped into this play because the one we intended to see was sold out. Note to self.... The acting was actually quite good, and I imagine the script is rather difficult to memorize.... because it is pure nonsense. There is no story, no plot, no beginning, no end, no purpose for this play-- other than to apparently point out how random, silly and unimportant our day-to-day conversations are. I could have handled that in a meme on FB. An hour? Really?

Sorry, it's not that funny....
While the Rev's material was actually pretty good, the delivery made it hard to laugh. Reading the script made it monotone. And it was read so fast there was little comedic pause. Had he memorized half the script, it would have filled the time properly and could have been delivered with a style that was less stiff. We kept thinking the audience was planted because of their boisterous laughter.
