"This play seems to be about the choices we make in our lives and how they affect us and those around us in the long run. Also familiar are "the grass is always greener on the other side" scenarios as Ruth decides first that she loves Andy, then Rob, then, after marrying Rob and making his life miserable, decides that she really loved Andy after all.

The only true love in this play was between the two brothers, who supported each other choices unconditionally and experienced the die-hard grief in death that only those who love each other truly can.Splendor in the Grass"
