Beautifully played, Political, Gender-bending, Smart

See it if you’d like a smart excursion into gender-bending that puts the (discredited) conversion therapy to cure gayness on trial.

Don't see it if Not for the easily disturbed. Location for Intar a problem for public transpiration but the growth of theater in the area will help.

"Raw and with moments of imagination, 'Bundle of Sticks' could afford to stylistically dive deeper into its author's wild imagination. For now, there are sparks but little fire."
