Read my review of The Other Place for Houston Press at:
Spot-on. The play deals with powerful, even harrowing subject matter yet I never felt emotionally drawn in or involved in more than a clinical way. You point out some of the specific reasons that this engagement fails to occur. (I also related to your comment about the actress playing the doctor, so unconvincing I thought initially she was just pretending to be a doctor!) The play brings up a host of issues well enough to stimulate thought but unfortunately fails to make them resonate in our hearts.
