The good guy, Bob, sees nothing wrong with cheating on his wife, smiling through all the scenes. And Miles and his notebook objectify the women he dates. All the characters are, frankly, thinly drawn. Under the direction of L. Flint Esquerra, there are sections where the actors talk over each other and become incomprehensible. This said, the second act fares better than the first, with some genuine emotion shining through, especially in the work of Ms. Share this:.

Loose Knit

What moment in the play did you like the best and why? What scene or moment in the play was least satisfying or troublesome for you and why? As part of Theater Appreciation, we were all supposed to go watch Loose Knit. Due to my busy schedule I was not able to go to see the play until the 17th of November. Still, I was thinking that since it was the last play, the actors and actresses might possibly act better.
