Jake Gyllenhaal (Terry) takes a stand out lead in this otherwise lackluster production. Brian F. O'Byrne (George) has a more minor character but clearly does his part to mire the family down.
Director, Michael Longhurst, takes a big risk by immersing the play in water - overhead, and on-stage. I doubt Mr. Longhurst could foretell the impending storm called Sandy, but in retrospect, his staging has an eerily dual impacts.
Although the concepts were seemingly well integrated with the staging - as disturbing as throwing the set pieces in the moat when they were done with them - I left the theatre with mixed feelings - - slightly satisfied at the overall staging and presentation but mostly disappointed at the pace and sense of vague-ness.
I say slightly because at some level, this work is a visceral, raw, and powerful attempt at telling an honest, deeply disturbing, and sadly quite common state of the family today. I'm trying not to confuse that sadness with the pace and presentation itself. That balance can be hard to identify and recon with.
... I haven't found it yet either.
