Sarah Treem makes the subject of evolutionary biology the topic the characters talk about a good amount of the play easy enough to digest without it being a learning curve during the show.

Before walking into the Beverly Hills Playhouse theatre, I knew almost nothing about Sarah Treem's play. What an excellent work of art! The portrayal of these two strong female characters from these superb actresses is worth the nominal price of admission. Faye Viviana plays Rachel, the tightly wound and incredibly intelligent estranged daughter of Zelda played by the multi talented Andrea Nittoli Kelly. I laughed and I cried. This is theatre. Truly a wonderful piece that Director, Allen Barton, honed beautifully. This is the 6th play I've seen at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, and I can't wait to see the next one. Truly a hidden gem in world class theatre.
