In WET's Northwest debut of this family drama about three brothers mulling over their varying degrees of success during a Christmas vacation, Young Jean Lee holds whiteness and straightness and maleness up to the light for a proper examination that's long overdue. Something tells me that director Sara Porkalob, who has written extensively on the issue, is going to have a lot of fun with this one. Though there's plenty of fodder for her, Charles Isherwood over at the New York Times says the play "goes far beyond cheap satire, ultimately becoming a compassionate and stimulating exploration of one man’s existential crisis."
