Interminable, Bizarre set and staging, Confusing, Unlikeable characters

See it if OK w 3 overwrought (& overacted) characters dealing w loss and grief. OK w crude language, a play that wants to be more than it is.

Don't see it if U feel trapped in a never-ending show w no break, bothered by varied English accents, don't like bad behavior of unlikeable 20-somethings. Read more

Absorbing, Slow, Confusing, Muddy direction, Uneven performances

See it if You're up for a workshop production very much a work in progress. Both very fine & troublesome moments in a refreshing meditation on grief.

Don't see it if Expecting a smooth finished product. Long, slow &unfocussed at times & unclear voices confuse the plot, but Haynes original &worth the visit Read more

Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You want to ponder the meaning of life and death with a group of friends who appear to have no clue

Don't see it if You want fully developed characters , in this case the most interesting one is the corpse

Entertaining, Confusing, Slow

See it if you want to see a show about how 3 friends deal with the death of a loved one.

Don't see it if if you have problems with British accents. 2 of the 3 actors are British - one easier to understand than the other.

Ambitious, Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intense

See it if You find the topic of loss fascinating. Seeing how different people morn the loss of a young person from the husband, sister and best friend

Don't see it if You are not a fan of a staged workshop. This is a show where the creative team does a production with actors but without the benefit of sets Read more

Uneven, Disappointing, Great acting, Confusing, Not engaging

See it if you appreciate good acting without too much emphasis on plot

Don't see it if you only see a few plays each year. May not be the best choice if you've recently experienced the loss of a close friend or family member. Read more
