Author: John O’Brien
Summary: A father’s mental struggle as he switches between two realities: one where his family is alive, and one where his family has died in a house fire.
Gut reaction: Loved it!
Why: The beginning was somewhat difficult to get through. Although once you get past the first scene with the family everything starts to make since in a sort of creepy yet awesome way. It was the type of play that required multiple read-throughs to find all the hidden connections O’Brien made between his two realities. I found the play left me with many questions but I was well satisfied with the twists, turns, and answers it did give me.
Who would like this book: You would like this play if you enjoy psychological mysteries.
Note: This play is not available through The Seattle Public Library. If you are interested, you can request it from another library system for a $5 fee or purchase your own copy.
