Your Exits are Here and Here - Seven Short Plays About "Love"

Here’s a tip for Bill MacGillivray, the playwright responsible for “Your Exits are Here and Here”: if you have the choice between saying something in 20 words or in 5 words, do it in 5. Please. The play, which contains charming and (almost) believable performances by a young couple who fall in and out of love, could be edited to half its length if the dialogue was not so repetitive and drawn-out. And while it’s vaguely amusing, the idea of flying as a metaphor for loves quickly grows tiresome, as does the long-winded advice from the sexy stewardess. The actors have trouble delivering their lines, but the lines are so ungainly that it’s hard to blame them.

"Exits" plays at the Neptune Studio on September 1 at 3:30 and September 2 at 8:30. tickets are $6.
