From the show:
Incantata is written by one of Ireland’s most revered writers, the New York based, Pulitzer Prize-winning Paul Muldoon and interpreted for the stage by Stanley Townsend and Sam Yates.

See it if Solo performance of an Irish poem using props as characters. Excellent use of video unlike WWS.
Don't see it if You like multi characters and a linear plot. Its's poetry and requires attentive listening.
See it if You like elegaic poetry generally, know (& or like) Paul Muldoon & don't mind a thick Irish accent in the delivery. Good acting, video again
Don't see it if you dislike poetry, short dramatic pieces, plays with no plot, overuse of video (a fad this season) or poor sound engineering.
See it if A poetic ode to a lost partner with incredible staging, acting and writing. Irish Rep does it again. I only caught parts but very moving.
Don't see it if If you want a linear plot and light hearted musical , this is very deep and memorable. Standing ovation by the house says it all. Go see it.
