We thought it had great impact, a completely absorbing story, terrific acting and stage management. The twist at the end well demonstrated the casualties from the issues being explored in the play.

Fine acting and a story so true. I say as one raised near Reading in a similar small city. While understandable that the two women who were laid ff were so angry with their friend, the black woman who was promoted, they should have realized she coud not save theri jobs. Senior management and investors decided their fate And I was left wondering what happened to these two key characters, their fate left unknown while the others we saw what they were doing. My guess is tey live out their lives in givt assistance, Social Securityand never leave Reading, a fate for many who can not---for a number of reasons---leave the city of their birth despite thefactnthat that city is a shell of itself and holds no future for them. Turnig to opioids is another reaction to the despair and holiness as we saw with my favorite character, the blone women , mother of the boy. So I guess the two women who lost their jobs---or accepted the company's 60% pay cut, are still there.Or in a home for addiction. Capitalism which has provided better living standards for much of society is shown in its cruelest form here. Notably, in the US today not only has unemployment dropped to a 50 year low but wages are finally increasing---up 3% last year and more states are increasing the minimum wage of salaried workers. I was remeninded of a Billy Joel pop song, "Allentown" which mirrors Reading's plight and is geographically near by in PA. Highly recommend this play.
