★★½ "Class warfare goes on vacation in Molly Smith Metzler's one-act comedy, which gets its local premiere under Steve Scott's direction at Redtwist. Scott's solid cast invests in the rather obvious conflicts with relish, nailing the laugh lines with reliable skill. But the show feels a bit like bingeing on salt water taffy: You may chew your way through to the end and wonder why you bothered to spend so much time and effort on a concoction that delivers less flavor than its bright surface hue promises. Metzler, whose play premiered at the 2011 Humana Festival of New American Plays at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, KY., takes on some of the same territory of class resentment plumbed to great effect by David Lindsay-Abaire in "Good People." But where Abaire rooted his characters in believable anguish, Metzler mostly opts for cartoon-bright outlines for her story of two siblings caught up in the world of the very rich and (seemingly) very shallow." -Kerry Reid
