See it if I don't really recommend it. Great acting but unpleasant to watch. Nice set though. The tiniest stage I've ever seen. Very intimate theater
Don't see it if If you don't like seeing plays about incest. Seemed long. Ugh!!
See it if you enjoy Irish drama. The playwright, Honor Molloy, is a third-rate Martin McDonagh.
Don't see it if you get upset about incestuous themes. Also, characters go from young to old and back, and can be very confusing.
See it if You love formula driven Irish plays performed in a sub basement
Don't see it if You rather spend your time doing something productive like washing clothes
See it if You like dark Irish theatre (though I do, and didn't like the show).
Don't see it if You're not wearing ten layers of clothing, because they pump arctic air into the theatre.
See it if You enjoy a slow paced, confusing play. By the time you get to the action, you just don't care anymore.
Don't see it if You want an interesting play that moves quickly enough to keep your interest.
See it if dramas that may or may not be well written. Impossible to tell due to extremely thick accents/brogue used in the production.
Don't see it if you wants actors who can say their lines in a manner that is understandable to the large majority of the audience.
