Matthew Ashford shines in this play as Michael, a man who visits his best friend's young widow.

The first 10-20 minutes are engaging, but a little 'play-like' (as opposed to TV or movie like) in the delivery of dialog.

However, as the play progresses and we begin to understand the purpose of Michael's visit, his acting gets tighter and tighter, and we see hints of his long-running character, Jack Deveraux, from the early Jack days.

He's angry, he's dark, he's scary, and he's charming. Matt delivers all of this on the turn of the dime.

Deceit may be somewhat predictable, and Tammy Minoff isn't all that great an actress, but Matt really pulls this one to the top of the DVD pile. I really urge you to get your hands on this and watch it. Enjoy a little scotch and soda while you do.
