See it if Like Harvey and one actor shows about politics.

Must see, Great acting, Intense

See it if You love Harold Pinter. Probably not his best work but worth seeing just for the staging. The acting was great, just see it.

Don't see it if You don’t like slow, intense, lots of dialogue plays. Some of the audience didn’t get it and unwrapped candy at key dialogue parts......

Also Acting is great, staging is very interesting. Lighting is fantastic.
