Great writing, Great staging, Entertaining, Ambitious, Great acting

See it if well-written and acted. kept my attention. characters very well developed. many surprises

Don't see it if not knowing irish words is difficult. you go to theatre to be a part of the story, not necessarily to learn something.

Thought-provoking, Profound, Great writing, Great acting, Clever

See it if you want to see a well-written, well-acted show that presents many dilemmas. and like life, not everything is resolved.

Don't see it if you have difficulty with heavy irish accents. i liked this play very much, but missed some statements.

Insipid, Slow, Excruciating, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if you want to learn about a strong woman who did not receive the credit she was due.

Don't see it if You hope to learn about this woman's intelligence. It was filled with tedious, boring scenes about her personal life.

Also Unfortunately, there was too much boring repetition.
