Intense, Great acting, Must see, Resonant

See it if you want to see some amazing acting in a play that centers around a young gay man in Uganda, and how his secret affects his religious family

Important, Intense, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a fresh new piece by a young playwright, watch a play about eating disorders and the multiple ways they can manifest,

Intriguing concept, Intense, Great direction, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you like adaptations of Shakespeare, all female casts, gritty and unabashedly intense productions and dark subject matter

See it if you want a fun night of theatre, an updated version of the film which is relevant for 2019 and some really great acting!

See it if you love Metcalf and Lithgow cause they are fantastic, like politics, are willing to imagine a fictional situation featuring real people

Don't see it if you aren't into politics (even though it isn't very political), you could care less about Hillary, don't like sparse sets or one-act plays

Also I don't think you need to be a Democrat to like or see this play; the ... Read more Read less
