Exciting, Absorbing, Funny, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you love Paul Dano and Ethan Hawke and are a fan of Sam Shepard's work and absurd worlds

Don't see it if you don't like (predominately) two-hander plays, out of control and outlandish characters, don't like Hawke because it is basically his show

78
Entertaining, Intense, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if you loved the movie version, want a fun night of immersive theatre, don't really want a narrative but more of an experience.

Don't see it if you don't like full nudity, cursing, drug use, if you are epileptic and are squeamish, you want a linear piece of theatre that has a point.

Intelligent, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want a short, thought-provoking piece about a queer relationship that deals with sex, intimacy and communication. Beautifully executed.

Don't see it if you are prudish or not an LGBTQ ally. I can't really think of any other reason not to see it since it is incredibly important and moving.

Intense, Cliched, Great set design, Slow

Thought-provoking, Fast paced, Wacky, Funny

See it if you want to not be spoon fed what you're supposed to think or take away from the piece, see a show with an all-female cast and have fun!

Don't see it if the word "pussy" offends you, you are uncomfortable with the topics of female genitals and sexuality or want to know what's going on 24/7

See it if you are a fan of Heather Lind and Alison Wright; these two women rocked and saved the show from some sometimes mediocre male performances.
