I liked this play, but I felt a little misdirected. The play is less about sibling rivalry or class warfare than it is about people getting in each others faces about each others lives. The discussion group that was to be held afterward wa billed as a discussion about sibling rivalry so I assumed the play would be about that, but instead I took away a feeling of "Why do people always have to try and direct other people's lives when we can't even direct our own" I marginally endorse this play.
I saw this play last Sunday and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I did, however, feel like I needed a cold shower afterward. The two characters were very easy on the eyes and there were sections in which the sexual tension was so think you could cut it with a knife. I recommend this play, even to the prudes among us. There was plenty of fun moments. A very memorable event.
I saw "A Behanding in Spokane" today and I have to say I was rather disappointed. I was disappointed in the writing. I'm no prude and I can take a lot of swearing and sexual innuendo, but the swearing in this play was way over the top. The f-word was repeated several times in almost every sentence, and it wasn't just spoken. It was usually yelled at the top of the voice. It really detracted from the show. I don't know if it was meant to illustrate the anger of all of the characters or what, but it was just too much. I went thinking that I was ready for some dark humor, and there were some funny lines and situations, but the use of the f-word really made the show seem angry and unfunny. I would not recommend this show until it is rewritten with the f-word removed from about 3/4ths of the lines. I think a more judicious use of the f-word might make the show more enjoyable. I have no objection to its use in the right places, just tone it down a bit.
