Hey what the actual Fuck. 
I don’t think I can add stars to this review because I genuinely don’t know what to rate it as out of 5.

Such a gripping play. I watched the film with Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep and found myself here. I couldn’t put it down. The conflict runs so deep, Letts writes about this intergenerational trauma so well. I think Ivy ended up being my favorite character. She has all the rage and hurt that Barbara does but doesn’t let it out. I enjoyed how complicated Barbara’s relationship is with Bill and the reflections of Violet in some of her outbursts. The entire play is devastating and sobering. I loved Charlie’s monologue in defense of little Charles: “I just can’t understand why folks can’t be respectful of one another. I don’t think there’s any excuse for it. My family didn’t treat each other that way.”
