Fun, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you are interested in plays about family matters, relationships and dark thoughts. The two actors were great, and the play was entertaining.

Don't see it if you expect a big scale, theatrical drama or lots of actions. Also, if you don't like stories that only based on text message dialogues.

Disappointing, Weak directing, Fun

See it if you want to see 2 quality actors in a pleasant evening of a show that fails to embrace its dark (albeit comic) dark side.

Don't see it if you want to see a show where the Director enhances the production and the author's (admittedly not powerful) work. Read more
