Actors were great, interesting plot, very thought provoking. The set was excellent. I would recommend this play to anyone.

The rough edges actually make it even more interesting and thought provoking. This is a playwright to watch. She has something to say that is worth pondering. We need lots more plays of this caliber and on meaty important social and personal themes. She manages to make you connect emotionally with even the nasty characters; the characters are real and 3 dimensional, not cardboard representations of a 'position' or a type. GO SEE IT.

Best show all season! Very well written, acted, and staged. Thought provoking and emotional, the characters really got to both of us.

While the subject was in line with Huntington's tendency to pick thought provoking issues, the actual writing was not very good. We have luxuriated in having lines graze past our ears from an array of excellent playwrights. The writing in The Luck of the Irish just wasn't in the same league.
