    " Read this for our mother-daughter book group and then watched the movie which was an excellent telling of the story and true to the play. "

    " I read this play, originally, in my junior year of high school for a scene study class I was taking with Cheryl-Ann Rossi. I remember, initially, being shocked by all the "seemingly" innocent characters being so sexual, but...now it seems normal. Age, I suppose, I was a late bloomer. Anyway, I still love the characters and it reminded me on this later read of Chekhov's THREE SISTERS. I also was surprised that the ending didn't work as well for me as it did in 1995...I didn't care as much for Babe this time. I started watching the film last night and Sissy Spacek helps me like the character of Babe, so, I guess, it's one of the age-old stories of theater where the script is a blueprint for the director, actors, and designers to improve upon. Anyway, I also was surprised that these people did not seem well-to-do to me. They seemed like a lot of lower-class people I know in Northern Idaho, but, I realized this has to do with Southern culture...and some historical trauma that allows this sense of entitlement for not a lot of work. Anyway, well-structured, fun characters...a chestnut, but...good for the college program I work for who is producing it in Winter quarter 2012. "

    " I was once in this as Doc Porter, sad feeling being him. Beauty in the silences. "

    " I think this really needs to be viewed as opposed to read since it makes infinitely more sense off the page. It's a very good play, though, very original. "
