Don't see it if The theater could really use better air conditioning but that was a small price to pay!
See it if you like one-person shows on significant social issues. Acting is solid, but script is uneven. Premise isn't compelling; it should/could be.

Don't see it if you do not like solo shows, or you do, but you like them to find a dramatic arc.
See it if you enjoy one person shows where numerous characters are played without interaction with each other - the actress/writer is a dynamo.
Don't see it if you hate being talked at by 8 different characters in a futuristic time/circumstance that doesn't quite hold up. Lots of data shared.
Also Stage lighting was blinding in the first row.

Don't see it if You have no patience for a timely and important one woman show that's more of an instruction course than a play but there's drama in it too.
