Loud, Fragmented, Drunken, Depressing, Well played

See it if you went to a lot of drunken parties in college & would like to relive your sloshed old times, over & over & over & over & over...

Don't see it if college binge drinking depresses you, & you think there are better ways to critique it than replicating its most annoying qualities onstage.

Also I am pretty sure the playwright wants to critique the culture of colle... Read more Read less

Relevant, Entertaining, Quirky, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if you want a take on how college relationships bring about good times and bad as reflection and adulthood set in - energetic cast does well.

Don't see it if you do not want to relive the craziness of college days or if the noise of the necessary fans keeps soft spoken dialogue unheard.

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

See it if astonishing ensemble work excites you. Huge cast creates a specific college environment in which we view individual insights & experiences.

Don't see it if fragmented, fast changing scenes will distract you from the exploration of multiple tragedies.

Too long, too busy and too many characters

See it if You want to see Play that looks back on what happened 10 years ago on a college campus with a bunch of friends

Don't see it if You are bothered when there are a bunch of unneeded characters. It also takes forever for the storyline to develop.

Also I don’t understand how someone could write this play and just put it o... Read more Read less

Great acting, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you are interested in millenials. You want to see what college kids are up to these days.

Don't see it if You hate theater in the round, or square, as the case may be.

Also Much of the dialogue got lost because actors faced away from audience ... Read more Read less

Not recommended

See it if You know some involved in the show to be supportive.

Don't see it if You don’t anyone involved.

Also The play is in desperate need of editing and a dramaturg. Many mistcas... Read more Read less

Collegiate, Shallow

See it if you know someone involved in the production.

Don't see it if friend rape is a trigger. You are hard of hearing. Quite a few of the actors aren't great at projecting.

Also This play tries to take on friend rape without really addressing the s... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you are concerned about the issue of "date rape."

Don't see it if you don't enjoy dramas involving college students.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Clever

See it if you remember hanging out drinking with your friends in college. If you know any of the actors, you'll be glad you came to check their show

Don't see it if you never went to college or never had a group of friends that you hung out with regularly back then-I don't think you would relate

Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Riveting, Clever

See it if You like intense dramatic theater, that covers very serious content in a masterful way. Writer and actors carry suspense through to the end.

Don't see it if You have issues with content about sexual violence/rape. If you are looking for lighthearted theater or an escape from the realities of life

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You miss your college days

Don't see it if You cannot handle themes of sexual assault and alcoholism

Dizzying, Mind-numbing, Offensive, Baffling, Mansplain-y

See it if You enjoy seeing a group of people (mostly women) blame themselves for a rape instead of the rapist responsible.

Don't see it if You value your time and money, and if you possess even tertiary knowledge about the reality of sexual assault.

Also Are you in the mood to watch a male writer pseudo-apologize for an ass... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Cliched, Banal, Poorly written

See it if you love the actors involved.

Don't see it if you enjoy a show with a plot, or direction.

Also I have to give a hand to the actors, and more importantly to the audie... Read more Read less

Don't see it if You cant relate to hanging out with friends, collage, parties or the after math of what could be.
