In 'The Test' by Crystal Skillman and directed by Jessi D. Hill, an English teacher in a struggling high school readies her juniors for the most important test of their lives. But when a symbol of hate appears in her classroom, she and two students on opposite sides of the recent election find their lives forever changed.
Chiori Miyagawa's 'In the Line' directed by Kristin Horton revolves around a woman who drops something while standing in a long line of people. She looks for the lost object as the line transforms into other lines—people waiting to vote, to buy the latest Nintendo, to get into the hottest restaurant—and she struggles to keep her original place. When she finally arrives at the front of this line that has shifted time and space, what she finds is a surprise. A magical exploration of loss, long lines, and letting go.

See it if You want to see talented young actors doing their best to overcome weak material.
Don't see it if Tired political posturing and trite, tired plot makes you want to head for the exit.
See it if you want to waste 2.5 hours of your life. Boring, amateurish writing, mediocre acting, disjointed. A mish- mosh of irrelevant skits.
Don't see it if you enjoy any other type of theater. There have to be a hundred different shows going on in nyc better than this. Just awful. Stay away.
See it if you support new playwrights and small theater companies with a mission

See it if U don't care for some work in progress. 1st story was fun to watch. The 2nd could b great if some repetitive scenes r removed.
Don't see it if You can't put up with slow scene. The staging and acting saves the play although 2nd story needs help.
See it if You want to support new work, enthusiastic young theater company. Don't expect much connection to 2016 election.
