I went to yesterday's matinee and also left during intermission. While the language was raw, I feel it was appropriate for the characters - young marines in the middle of a war that to some appear to be an extension of a video game. I also thought the actors did a great job in conveying the horror and confusion of war.
I appreciate Theater Three for bringing intelligent and thought-provoking theater to North Texas, and this play is no exception, but the overall story was so brutal and horrific that I couldn't stay for Act Two. I was completely against this war and have seen enough pointless violence on the nightly news, that I don't need to watch it for education or "entertainment." However I do believe that every politician and military leader in a position to send soldiers to war should be forced to watch it all the way through

Best costume I saw at a party this weekend was a tall guy dressed as a cowboy with flames coming out of his hat - Big Tex on Fire! ;-)

I wish the Velvet Taco would bring back their buffalo chicken taco, that was great and is definitely missed (according to the staff).

RobertB is right on. We live in a world that exploits sex and then says this is wrong. Until we get our values aligned, how can we expect underage kids to do the same?

I agree! I also know Elly and she has been talking about what a wonderful play this is. While I am glad to see the story promoting this show, I found it stunning that there was no mention of the woman who is one half of this two-person show.
