Marvin's Room [play, podcast]

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK ABOUT THIS. IT'S HALF WAY BETWEEN BEING EXTREMELY THEMATICALLY STRONG BY HAVING A BUNCH OF CHARACTERS IN END OF LIFE SITUATIONS THAT ARE ALL TOTALLY DIFFERENT BUT THEN ALSO IT'S A WICKED BAD "HERE IS SOME STUFF THAT HAPPENED' PLAY THAT IS JUST A BUNCH OF RANDOM STUFF THAT DOESN'T REALLY GO ANYWHERE. LIKE THE CENTRAL STORY ARC IS REALLY ABOUT HANK BUT LIKE, WHY? HE SORT OF JUST HAS HIS OWN THING AND NONE OF THE ACTUALLY STUFF THE PLAY WAS ABOUT REALLY IS ANYTHING ABOUT HIM. 
  
 
PS. I GOT SO INTO THIS THING. I SAT IN MY CAR TO HEAR THE END. A LONG TIME AGO I USED TO DRIVE BACK FROM PORTLAND MOST SUNDAY NIGHTS AND HEAR THE RADIO DRAMAS AND I MISS THAT A LOT. I ALSO LISTENED TO A TERRIBLE THING WHERE A GUY MADE A TIME BOMB TO MURDER HIS WIFE AND THEN BURGLARS TIED HIM UP AND HE HAD TO COUNT DOWN THE LAST HOUR BUT IT TURNED OUT HIS WIFE HAD A SECRET CRIMINAL BROTHER INSTEAD OF A SECRET BOYFRIEND THEN SHE TOOK ALL THE FERTILIZER OUT OF THE FERTILIZER BOMB TO MAKE FLOWERS BUT THE HUSBAND DIED OF FRIGHT AT 3PM ANYWAY.
