Supporting characters include Sasha Spielberg as Sally, Jake's sister; Ellen Shadburn as their mother, Lorraine; and Michelle Snyder and Ted Cava as Beth's parents, Baylor and Meg. Unfortunately, Cava is allowed to overact as the angry Wyoming rancher, expressing every shade of anger as the same blind rage. Playing his wife, Snyder sometimes makes the same mistake.

The set design by Michael McGarty is properly stark and evocative. Two beds, one in a hospital, stand diagonally across a slightly slanted stage. The set is dominated by an enormous white circle, a full moon. The lunacy and existential dream states on display couldn't be better represented. It's a shame that the production as a whole can't provide such light.
