Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in how the Good Friday agreement finally happened. Are familiar with the personalities & politics. Some liberties taken.

Don't see it if You know nothing about the agreement & key players. A printed program would've been hugely helpful, though I remembered enough going in. Read more

Fast-paced, Dense, Great directing

See it if you like detailed & energetic political "how the sausage is made" behind-the-scenes plays, (similar to much superior Oslo) with a great cast

Don't see it if if you're not in the mood to watch deeply opposed political adversaries negotiate & find ways to compromise. It's been done before, better.

Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Intelligent

See it if you’re interested in the negotiations that led to the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland. That’s what this is, and that’s all it is.

Don't see it if you’re not interested in that subject, or if you have trouble understanding Irish accents, object to profanity, or admire Tony Blair. Read more

Great staging, Funny, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in history and/or politics. You appreciate good set design. You love accents.

Don't see it if History bores you and/or you do not like simpler shows and prefer flashy musicals.
