Don’t miss The Bad and the Better, a riveting detective noir centered around the Lang brothers. One with everything to lose. One with everything to prove. Both in too deep.

A cautionary tale about the hypocrisy of extreme principles, The Bad and the Better explores the dangers of maintaining loyalty and protecting your family, whoever they are, at any cost. When it comes to the bad and the better, what’s the difference?

BWW Reviews: The Amoralists Make You Question What is THE BAD AND THE BETTER
by Trish Vignola - June 23, 2012

The play ultimately is 30 to 40 minutes too long. It is set in the present but the neo-noir language, scenic and costume design causes tonal confusion. Ahonen's dialogue leads to some comedic moments, but overall The Bad and the Better comes off as playing at being a Tracy Letts play and very much falls short.
