See it if You like meaty political dramas and you're willing to put a bit of effort in to get the most out of it.
Don't see it if You're not in the mood for depth that moves fast. This is a really dense play with a large cast of characters
See it if You like shows that use people's daily interactions to tell a story focusing on race and class issues. A truly great production.
Don't see it if possibly if you've seen it before. It's still pretty brilliant though.

See it if You want a way to see this play that tackles its inherent sexism head on
Don't see it if you don't really understand irony. Someone heckled when I went for the extreme misogyny. Either they are brilliantly meta or missed the poin
