See it if you enjoy fast paced and totally different plays which require some imagination on your part. You know a bit about Irish rugby (can learn).
Don't see it if you know a absolutely nothing about Rugby; you don't like shows with no scenery or props; you prefer straight drama or musicals.
See it if You are a fan of rugby, and small cast Irish plays. This play is quite upbeat, however it is slow with too many subplots.
Don't see it if You have trouble following different characterizations, dont enjoy accents that go in and out, have little knowledge of Ireland and rugby.
