Profound, Overrated, Intense, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You love Laura linney and would enjoy a master class of her acting. Also if you enjoy Stouts novels. The play is quirky but shes great

Don't see it if You need a direct storyline. This is steam of consciousness which makes it interesting and not typical.
