Mary [Shen Barnidge],

Taking the cue from your positive review for The Love Talker [March 24], the two of us spent $30 of our hard-earned dough on that godawful play. Were you high on dust when you went to see it? After two minutes, it was clear that it wasn't just a bad play, it was a damn bad play, damn, damn bad.

Here's our review: This dog is obvious and predictable, with the kind of dense, unsubtle writing that generates only a shitty taste in your mouth.

Thanks for nothing.
