The characters' struggles with family acceptance, while simultaneously rejecting each other's families due to past actions, further contributing to the play's overall lack of coherence. An attempt at exploring personal identity unfolds when one character receives an invitation to a gender reveal party, accompanied by a note acknowledging their identity and expressing understanding if they opt not to attend. However, this moment fails to resonate, and the characters' quest for acceptance feels forced and inconsequential.
The play seems fixated on time, with no real relevance to the plot. Anniversaries, birthdays, ages, and the duration since characters last saw each other are mentioned without any meaningful impact. The absence of effective performance skills to show the ageing diminishes the significance of this aspect and may have worked better not mentioning years but focusing on the performance of them.
Although there are minor changes to the set at the beginning and a handful of token props to signify the arrival of the baby, they do little to compensate for the lack of substance. They go overboard on the frequent and unnecessary costume changes to maintain visual interest. With the right costume changes these characters could have moved from cool youths to smart for work, to comfy relationship clothes rather than just swapping one shirt for another almost identical one.
