Gun and a Motel Bible

It's hard to imagine Gun and a Motel Bible would out perform my expectations after I read the rave reviews beforehand, but that it did, and then some. It is an intelligent, clever, provocative, and compelling drama whose whose script was only outmatched by its acting. While dramatic and emotional at times, it was not heavy-handed or overdone. It landed moments of brief levity with deftness, which did not undercut the significance of the plot, and the characters' (actors') ability to reach and challenge the viewer, regardless of their perspective on the subject matter, was masterful. As mentioned in a previous review, I struggle to remember an hour of my time so thoroughly engaged and inspired by a performance.
