Day 21 - So Close to Home

I have no idea why this was billed as a 'site-specific' performance, as we sat facing a wall, albeit tiled, for 1 hour and 40 minutes. It did stink of old pizza, and felt like a dead-end place to have a restaurant, so that much was authentic, but there was no real theatrical real use of the venue.

I doff my hat to the three actors who gave it their all. The dialogue was well crafted, with character writing that fitted men of three differet generations. But I'm not sure about the casting. The grandfather and father seemed to be about the same age. The main thrust, three generations who eventually put aside their differeces to play to their shared strengths, didn't quite come off.
