Great writing, Great use of the stage, Fast moving scene changes, Pleasantly surprised

See it if you want to see a young playwright with a lot of potential. They really did an amazing job with the space they had to work with

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great writing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a gripping play that features so much humanity, albeit as a grim tragedy. Shades of grey - no cartoonish villains or heroes.

Don't see it if You would find the play too grim and tragic. If you want elaborate staging. If you are not interested in American labor history. Read more

Great writing, Intelligent, Great acting, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in the history of miners in this country and how they were used for others enrichment.

Don't see it if If you are looking to see a polished work. The actors are great but are held back a little by transitions and a limited set.

Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if You want to see an ambitious show in its nascent stages. The topic is interesting and important. It has the bones of something wonderful.

Don't see it if You want something fully polished with a fixed set and real period costumes. And beware your bladder - it's 2+ hours with no break. Read more

Intense, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if Production took on an aggressive, important & meaningful topic of the formation of a union in a mining community. Play has great promise.

Don't see it if The script needs work. The play is much too long.

Relevant, Slow, Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if Morgan's historical drama about early labor unionizing (mine workers) is a compelling saga empathetically told A large, able cast works hard

Don't see it if An innumerable number of short intercut scenes gives the feeling of a screenplay rather than a detailed drama Brisk scene changes are a plus

Emotional, Amazing acting, Comedic factor, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if The audience feels all the emotions. They make you want to cry and laugh. When you hate a character you know the actor did an amazing job!!

Don't see it if You are not a historical fan in any degree. However the script was engaging enough.
