A compelling and moving production – inspired acting, provocative themes and points of view, excellent character development and questions that tease the mind for days afterward. Theatre doesn’t get any better than this!

This play is one of the very best I have seen in a very long time. The acting, the story line, and the ambiance of the theatre all made for a great show. I highly recommend it as a must see play.

Leda in one of her rants says the phrase “appointments made long ago”. We know that we have that final appointment – death – that none of us can ignore. However, in between, are many little appointments – running into a friend you haven’t seen in years, or talking with a stranger on the path. How can you bless others in your encounters (appointments) with them?

This show was very well performed by the 3 actors from the Ruby Slippers theatre company. Secondly, it was very thought-provoking, probing the big issues of life: living, illness, dying, relationships, etc.

However, I was dismayed by (what I felt to be) a caricature of a Christian person, portrayed by the daughter. The daughter reminded me of everything that is unlikeable about “in-your-face, rules-oriented, black-and-white, my-way-or-the-highway” Christians. While these right-wing Christians still exist in some (fringe) circles, I really don’t feel they’re at all a fair representation of mainstream Christians – or an authentic Christian message, I think the majority of wonderful Christian people I know and love are people who sincerely love God and seek to love their neighbour as they love themselves. So, I felt the daughter’s character played into a caricature of Christianity – a regretable caricature that reinforces uninformed or unthinking people’s thoughts / beliefs about mainstream Christian people. Although I am a Christian woman, I do not appreciate or wish to be lumped in with that daughter who couldn’t see or feel her dying mother’s longing for acceptance, re-connection and love; she only wanted to hear her mother repent of her sins so her soul could be saved…. And in the end, the daughter herself rejected this right-wing brand of Christianity, left her husband and child behind, and was drifting, with no “Communion” on the horizon. Troubling and dismaying, for me.

I enjoyed the play very much – hit quite close to home in some places. Poignant moments brought tears to my eyes. Don’t let this happen to your family………
