If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet is an interesting study of a family spiraling downward. Jake Gyllenhall is truly magnificent in his very challenging role as Uncle Terry who tries to reach out to his socially chided niece Anna wonderfully portrayed by Annie Funke. Bryan O'Byrne and Enid Graham are outstanding in their roles as Anne's caring but helpless parents. The set design is plain and what you would expect of an off Broadway show but the way the props are disposed of in scene changes is brilliantly unique. This play has one of the most disturbing scenes I've ever experienced in the theater so hold on tight. It will keep your interest throughout and you will be entertained by a terrific cast with a particularly stellar performance by Jake Gyllenhall. One slight problem for me was that it was very difficult to understand all of Uncle Terry's words due to the character's thick accent but it is also part of his charm. Go see it.
