The writing is very interesting and the characters are both wounded and looking for love and acceptance in the harsh world that they live in.I had to read this for class, but really enjoyed the characters than I thought I would. A beautiful story of two individuals, who are incapable of finding words to describe the whirlwind of hate, love and hope on the inside that spins them nauseous and threatens to destroy them As they try desperately to find one last chance at connection, their darkest secrets and brightest dreams are revealed It s up to the reader audience to determine for themselves if it is too late for these hapless dreamers.It s beautifully barbaric and seductive One of my dream plays. John Patrick Shanley has a rare gift that gift being that he can take the hideous and show you its beauty, he can take the dark and show its light If you think I m being too romantic, or dramatic about the whole thing go read this play and find out for yourself. This play was an absolutely spiritual experience Perhaps it just found me at the right moment in my life to be receptive to it, but I have never felt like something could be so honest and raw.I started quoting lines in my own life It just made sense. Shanely sets us up with two monsters They are truly hideous peopleyet ten pages in, you ll love them You ll love them not because they re charming, rougish, or magnetic they re none of these but because they are so human it hurts. The play seemed a bit aimless but it worked.
