    This is a play about complicated relationships, addiction, friendship, love and loyalty Funny how people can bethan one thing I thought it was brilliant, funny, touching and wonderfully acted I d love to see it performed, but this audio of the Broadway cast was the next best thing If the title puts you off, then almost every line in the play will offend you I loved every minute of it.

    He writes about people I don t know, about a world I ve never lived in And yet when I finished this I unfortunately didn t get to see what was apparently a wonderful NY production I wanted to be the writer and all the characters in the play I felt as I was reading this big fat gust of life blowing me around the room, and sat down to see could I write like that, could I do it without thinking, in emulation, honoring this voice andhoping to hear an aspect of my own that I haven t located befor He writes about people I don t know, about a world I ve never lived in And yet when I finished this I unfortunately didn t get to see what was apparently a wonderful NY production I wanted to be the writer and all the characters in the play I felt as I was reading this big fat gust of life blowing me around the room, and sat down to see could I write like that, could I do it without thinking, in emulation, honoring this voice andhoping to hear an aspect of my own that I haven t located before but suspect is in there Bliss for me would be to spend weeks playing with this, shocking myself, making myself laugh, seeingof who I am That s what great writing does t me, and this is great writing I have his other plays on my IPad as of yesterday This is a sea change Instead of going to get the BOOK, I ve gotten its avatar Good thing

    This was a Goodlisten..the theme and dialogue was cool, but the performances were phenomenal

    I can understand and appreciate why this play generated the buzz and received the accolades that it did However, it is not my cup of tea I ve never been a fan of stories where the whole point is that the characters behave badly and treat those around them like crap Cousin Julio was the only character that I liked, and he wasn t in it enough to redeem the story for me.

    This was a very interesting audiobook I liked the story.

    I was interested in this play because it was garnering a lot of buzz, I think mainly because Chris Rock was starring in it This might have clouded my feelings going into the play I thought it was a comedy, or would have been funny It s not It s intense It has drug users, philanderers, and parolees These characters are different, but they are not really likable either Some have some good qualities, but they are not redeemable, or nice.

    Performance done in Oklahoma City of all places to several sold out houses An amazingly raw, fierce script with complex and interesting characters.


  9. Chuck O& Chuck O& says:

    The real life horror show that comes with addiction and codependency but one that has real moments of humor, love and compassion.


  10. Brian McCann Brian McCann says:

    Powerful dialogue Raw Real Playwright has distinctive ear for a specific American voice The title is exploitive It s really about recovery rather than the F word.
