Clever, Funny, Relevant, Ultra absurdist, Silly

See it if Reminds me of the 1960's Theatre of the Absurd, Kopit, Durang and Ionesco. Come to the theatre with NO expectations ! Don't try to analyze !

Don't see it if You absolutely need to be able to figure out every nuance to enjoy the dialogue. You hate nonsense ! It's not a "well-made" play !

Absurdism ad nauseum, Lacks mother/son chemistry, Mud will be flung, Comic vein not found, Repitition not = to comic builds

See it if you want different take on absurdism, appreciate the Fringe spirit, to see great hair on a attractive male actor, to see a white set dirtied

Don't see it if absurdism, flung dirt, toilet as major setpiece, lack of relationships on stage, pepto bismol baths etc. etc. etc.are not 2 your liking

Bearable

See it if You enjoy any & all critiques of politics & religion; you’d see a newer absurdist play w/ some contemporary American references thrown in

Don't see it if You want to be impressed w/ inventive writing, a challenging point of view, or demanding performances Read more

Quirky, Relevant, Funny, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if You enjoy Theater of the Absurd plays.

Don't see it if You cannot take repetition and banal dialogue.

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Entertaining, Weird

See it if You like niche shows and can make the jump between what's presented on stage and politics, deriding extremes on both the left & right

Don't see it if You're not into weird. You want something that is more than a simple provoking of thought or want to see a normal relationship on the stage

Banal, Cliched, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cringe-worthy

See it if You like to show your support to the organization

Don't see it if You got better things to do. And thank god it was only an hour. Read more
