Anna Deavere Smith's play is a dramatic and informative work geared towards reawakening our spirits and raising awareness and consciousness to the plight of mankind and the human condition. From the moment the play opens Anna Deavere Smith, demands and captivates our attention. Each character just as interesting and as insightful as the next; a journey of the human spirit which you will not soon forget. I came away feeling as though my soul had just been soothed and cradled to sleep. 'Let Me Down Easy' is a must see.
*If throughout the play you are plagued by images of Eugene O'Neill's 'Long Day's Journey Into Night', you're not alone. I suppose it is the complexity and multi-layers of its content that inevitably, conjures up images of O'Neill's masterwork.*
