Resonant, Masterful, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to be totally absorbed in the story. Very fine acting by Mary-Louise Parker in a great, occasionally humorous Adam Rapp play

Don't see it if you want to see a fancy production with elaborate set (it's very simple but effective); if you want something light-weight.

Entertaining, Great acting, Clever, Quirky

See it if you want to see smart, middle class English people reveal their true selves after much amusing talk and drink. Brilliant cast.

Don't see it if you want the play to take you somewhere--this one wheels around on itself thrice, but in surprising and interesting ways.

Great acting, pointless play, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if want to see Eileen Atkins and Jonathan Pryce give their all, good supporting cast and nice set.

Don't see it if you have better things to do with 80 minutes. Play is indulgent and not terribly artistic, confusing, prismatic, repetitive, unnecessary.

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you like energetic performances laced with humor and surprise. On the topic of dying this play yielded a lot of laughs and a couple of tears

Don't see it if you don't like stories of mixed-race families with dysfunction, some cursing, dealing with mortality and emotional issues.

Ambitious, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you'd like to have your empathy-capacity expanded while learning credibly and entertainingly what life on the spectrum can be...

Don't see it if you don't like semi-immersive plays dealing with relevant but sometimes uncomfortable subjects...also it's a bit noisy at the beginning.
