Best play since Death of a Salesman

I saw this play performed in Des Moines, Iowa; I thought it was hilarious. But I also knew there was a deeper layer, too, so I bought this script.

This story captures life in modern day rural America. It tackles issues like suicide, drug use, sexual harrassment, divorce and-most importantly-caring for members of "the Greatest Generation." The characters are educated but honest; loveable but flawed; humorous but grave. The distance between the generations are apparent, and handled realistically but also with social comment.

If you get a chance to see the play, don't miss it! If you can't see it, read the play slowly, there are multiple layers of beauty woven into this Pulitzer Prize-winning play.

The course language and adult themes are not for the feint of heart, and it is not appropriate for children or (IMHO) kids under 14.

It is a play....

I did not review before ordering. Did not realize it was a play. A waste of money for me. Very disapointed.
