A Face That Fits

I am a sarcastic and cynical person. This leaves me well-equipped to criticise, but at a loss when trying to describe something I genuinely enjoyed as much as ‘A Face That Fits’. I’d like to describe it as a play about lost dreams and unfulfilled potential, but I’m not sure that’s a description which would make me want to see it. Imagine a chat between an angry youth and his grandfather. Now project this onto a chat between a man and a complete stranger. I didn’t expect to laugh. I didn’t expect to leave feeling happy, nay hopeful. But the sincerity with which I struggle comes naturally to this cast, and their thespian talent in this intimate environment was delightful.
