Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You are looking for drama set in the contemporary South. If you want to see a show featuring African-American actors and characters.

Don't see it if You are looking for a well-written, well-acted romantic drama. If you expect more than cliched romantic tropes.

Inconsistent, Plot holes, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Intelligent

See it if you enjoy new plays with not-often-seen characters and viewpoints.

Don't see it if you expect clear character motivations or acting that expresses emotional range beyond variations on agitated, distrustful, or cautious.

Tender, Intimate, Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Romantic

See it if you like contemporary plays with layered characters performed in an intimate setting.

Don't see it if You’re looking for pure escapism or aren’t interested in bittersweet love stories.
