A Fine Production of a Terrific Play

William Laney is extraordinary in the role of Angus, whose personality shifts from that of a mathematical idiot savant to that of a mentally challenged man who cannot recall from one moment to the next to whom he is speaking, who is submissively obedient to Morgan in one instant and angrily flailing out against what he can neither remember nor comprehend in the next. Brad Fryman is equally impressive as Morgan, lovingly concerned for Angus who is as much his ward as his friend and tortured by the memories he carries within him and cannot share. And Alex Fast is splendid as Miles, serious and conscientious in his craft but at the same time bumbling and incompetent. All in all, a fine play with three wonderful performances. I have posted an expanded version of this review, together with reviews of several other Broadway, off Broadway, and off off Broadway plays on my blog
