★★★★ out of 5

Local playwright Justen Bennett creates a believable, funny and sweet story in this tale of a loving gay couple who decide to bring a third to their bed. This play is a complete treat. The script is snappy and the plot moves along at a rapid pace. Characters are fully rounded and have discussions that let their nerd flags [fly] as they discuss Star Trek, board games and role play. The actors seemed a bit nervous on their first night, but by the end of the run should be able to deliver a top-flight show.
