Long, Excruciating, Quirky, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if Perhaps it went over my head, or perhaps it was just nonsense. But either way it went on forever. Some deep thoughts though.

Don't see it if you don't want to torture yourself

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Great acting, Excruciating

See it if you want to challenge yourself to figure out a seemingly complicated plot.But good luck on that as I, just like most others, did not get it.

Don't see it if you want to follow a plot w/o too much mental work. This one may require a lot & in the end still figuring out if it's profound or nonsense.

Dizzying, Intense, Edgy, Funny, Confusing

See it if You are okay with swearing and want to see something dark and profound. Also if you want something on mental illness

Don't see it if You're not okay with swearing or something with a simpler storyline

Theater In The Now
June 16th, 2017

"Director Richard C. Aven guides the cast of 12 through their nonlinear, perhaps therapeutically circular adventure in many modes of being...This impressive play isn’t straightforward, but neither are most interesting people...It’s the kind of show which doesn’t have a main character, and which calls for great performances from the entire ensemble. I applaud Menzies, Aven, and the cast for avoiding cliché in their portrayals of young and old characters."
