The play starts with a man apparently asleep in bed. He awakens and starts muttering to himself. Then it gets strange.
While I don't want to give away any of the plot elements, I'll say that I found that the pacing was a bit uneven. It sets up lots of disconnected feelings and emotional states, and they only really get connected in the last fifteen minutes. There are some really sublime moments, once where the audience wonders what their own role is in the production; in that kind of intimate space, is there a fourth wall?
I really appreciated that SVT set the evening up so that we'd have a chance to chat with the actor, Brent Werzner, after the show. It was an informal Q&A where we got to explore the themes of the play and how the various mechanisms of the production worked. The work isn't meant to have a clear meaning, and there was some dissent among audience members about some of the interpretations.
Should you see it? If you like the theater and want to see how it can be reshaped and reworked, yes, go see it. However, don't expect the experiment to be neat and easy; there's a lot of potential here, but I'd like to see a stronger story that provided some resolution earlier in the work while still preserving the strong ending.
