Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You want to hear about a playwright's experience going to Afghanistan with some moments of comedic relief. Powerful moments.

Don't see it if You want something light or don't want to be forced to face some realities. This play deals with heavy subject matter.

See it if You want to be confronted with life outside the bubble. You enjoy poignancy presented with humor and pathos.

Don't see it if You can not see, hear or think about human suffering.
