COMMENTS:

Okay, I went into this thinking it was a comedy – that’s how it’s advertised. Trash is more like a drama. Don’t go in thinking silly hillbillies. The main struggle is a man suffering from AIDS, and how he and his girlfriend deal with it and move on with life. I saw an understudy play the old man Winters, so maybe it would have played out differently with another actor, but I felt it was definitely more dramatic than comedic. The young actor and actress did a good job.

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

None

Thank you for letting me know that. At least now I have a better idea of what to expect.
