In retrospect, I agree with you.  But I enjoyed her performance nonetheless.

Yes, although it was distracting, it didn't stop me enjoying the performance and certainly not the play.

Yes I did consider the same thing Mallardo, but found it so distracting at times that if it WAS a deliberate decision then I think it was a mistake.

Seconded

Thirded. I enjoyed this a lot. As others have said there is a slight feeling in the first half that you are getting a lecture on feminist theory, but I found the ideas being presented so interesting that this didn't bother me. In fact at one point I remember thinking that there were so many interesting points being made that I almost wanted the play to stop for a minute so I could think about one before being presented with the next.

The praise for Shannon Tarbet is well deserved, but I enjoyed all the performancs (with the mother's wandering accent being the only negative). One of those plays that I have found myself thinking about for several days after, which is always a positive sign for me.
