Ambitious, Slow, Profound, Great acting

See it if If you want a one person show where a wife talks issues of her husband and life.

Don't see it if If you don't like wordy one person shows. Her weakness could have been written differently.

Relevant, Intelligent, Riveting, Intense, Absorbing

See it if You like 1 person shows. This is a good one. She takes you on a pretty bumpy ride, without ever exactly revealing her subject. You know.

Don't see it if You’re not a fan of one person shows or if you thought Brett Kavanaugh got a rough deal in his Supreme Court hearing.

Current, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Solo woman's monologue regarding her husband's "DNA" & the effects on family & society at large that "DNA" has & is allowed

Don't see it if can't bear listening for 80 minutes, hate solo form, think a woman bearing her soul is not for U, think "OldClub" men should prevail

Relevant, Intense, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like exploring feelings and actions that aren't easy to understand. Here, the motivation of women defending a husbands bad behavior

Don't see it if you dislike one person shows or expect something light and undemanding.

A slow and interesting reveal, Slow yet very engaging, Thoughtful writing and empathetic performance, Brett kavanaugh-like storyline, 80 minute intimate monologue

See it if Like monologues and are willing to listen closely and carefully. Appreciate feminist issues and well-crafted storytelling.

Don't see it if Need flash or action. Are impatient or not interested in a slow, yet excellent, yarn being spun.

"The production is by its nature static...There's nothing more disappointing about the plot of a new play than not being surprised by it."
