Dylan Spokes, a fast-rising young star, arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan is forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad, saucy mum, quick-tongued manager, and a renowned gangster, to boot. It’s a fast-paced comedy thriller where, in an exciting twist, the tournament unfolds live on stage.

Don't see it if you're expecting another One Man Two Guvnors type show. This was nothing like that and rather disappointing
See it if you want a sitcom like show ... it is not hard to understand or follow ... the second act is entertaining but the ending is very abrupt.
Don't see it if you want a memorable play ... while not terrible, I would not recommend at Broadway prices
See it if Want a good laugh and don't mind the long run time.
Don't see it if 1. Don't understand a Yorkshire accent. 2. Want a show with some substance. 3. Need a very deep plot.
See it if Amazingly talented cast. The show's more about them than snooker, which I know little about. It was a very fun evening.
Don't see it if Cast speaks with heavy accents, but I got used to it and it's part of the charm. Very enjoyable.
See it if You enjoy British drama with interesting twists and turns in the narrative. Probably as effective as a detective novel instead of a play.
Don't see it if You prefer more resonant writing which makes you think about the world around you. This is entertainment, but not much more.
See it if you are interested in a show that involves a championship game like billiards [snooker] taking place in Sheffield, England. Entertaining!
Don't see it if if you have no interest in the above or do not do well tuning your ear to accents.

Don't see it if you find English accents confusing (although if you can’t understand a Sheffield accent...I’m sorry), or would rather see a musical
See it if you want a smart play that's humourous with brilliant writing, you can sit through a long exposition
Don't see it if you're not into British humour, you really don't care for long plot-points, you want something super dark
