Great writing, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if Surprisingly entertaining. The whole thing works: writing, reading, lighting.

Don't see it if It's not really "theater" though it was a wonderful indoors experience while still under Covid restrictions.

Predictable plot, Interesting staging, Resonant, Extraordinary use of technology, Absorbing

See it if you want a dramatic theatrical evening. The clever socially distanced seating & use of headsets makes for a unique experience.

Don't see it if you are bored by dystopian science fiction, you expect a play with live actors or you miss the shared experience that used to be theatre.

Disappointing, Confusing, Clever

See it if you like an unusual setting for a play. There was no formal stage, The story was what could happen in future but was confusing.

Don't see it if you like a formal show with stage, costumes and action. However this was one of first shows after pandemic so Bravo for doing this play.

Intense, Resonant, Relevant, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you get another chance! This was innovative, affecting, and original.

Don't see it if you require a visual performance on a stage, rather than a unique audio experience.

Thought-provoking, Intense, Disappointing, Entertaining, Great sound

See it if This is not really a play but more of an audio performance with lighting effects. Well done but not what I was hoping it would be.

Don't see it if you don't like sitting in the dark listening to an unsettling story on headphones.
