The play is not without flaws. The Irish fiddle electronica that saws and whizzes between scene changes might be a bit much, and the cast members wear their winter coats with a precarious unease like African villagers balancing jugs on their heads for the first time. There's also a tacked-on epilogue that doesn't do much for the play other than overstate and simplify things (though it does offer a welcome return appearance of Dimon).

Director Joseph Adler introduced the opening-night performance by calling the show "a piece that resonates for our time." Margie's story, though, is not one of a downturned economy but of a downturned society. It is not bound to any particular moment but to a cycle in which good people suffer when educational opportunities aren't evenly distributed and familial obligations come before personal advancement. Margie never expected life to be fair; she just wanted her life to be one in which she had some say as to how it might go.
