Complicated, Structurally amiss, Great acting, Two plays in one, Flat

See it if you're interested in stories concerning millennial thoughts and problems, enjoy Jack Thorne, and can find nuggets of gold in a messy play.

Don't see it if you want perfection, are easily set off by problematic race interactions between characters, detest experimentation in movement.

Clever, Ambitious, Indulgent, Great staging, Great acting

See it if plays that experiment with time and structure, and possess great language.

Don't see it if you're interested in seeing a traditional piece of theatre. All elements are good, but the play is a big self-indulgent and pretentious.
