Maz is planning to attend a pro-choice demonstration. Bricks is planning to take his daughter to the zoo. But, as the day unfolds, nothing goes to plan and the two become unlikely friends, changing each other in ways they never thought possible.
See it if A well acted play that has some good writing points in it.
Don't see it if Thick accents make this at times difficult to follow and enjoy. Political message in it not for everyone.
See it if Meet-cute oil-water opposites-attract hot-button rhyme-com. Easily removed from socio-politics with rhyming scheme in a foreign locale.
Don't see it if Accents. Monologues. Poetic rhyme. Non-combustible politics , but non-combustible oil and water chemistry between two, which is also nil.
Also One floats to the other "side" by conviction or for romance or both?
See it if Quirky love story between two socially unaligned lost souls with a lot of baggage find each other.
Don't see it if Very talky, and although the backdrop features some political/social commentary there is nothing new or special here.
See it if You don't mind concentrating really hard to understand the brogue, and are interested in what motivates people to become activists.
Don't see it if The brogue will be too hard to understand, and you prefer plays with larger casts and more action.
Also The actors were quite good, especially the male lead.
See it if you enjoy modern Irish drama, two-character plays, stories about strangers connecting, folk with esteem issues & guilt, people who feel real
Don't see it if don't like new plays, Irish drama, two-handers, talk about abortion and abuse, 80-minute one acters, Irish accents & slang
See it if Plays that tell us about people who meet and like what they see and use rhyme as dialogue to communicate and narrate the action. And then..
Don't see it if You don't like rhyming... and don't care to see what can happen when strangers meet and then split.
See it if You enjoy a serious two hander that deals with abortion, rape and family ruptures
Don't see it if You have trouble with a fairly thick Dublin accent from the male character which can make following the dialogue challenging
See it if You enjoy pure theater; deep-felt expression of hidden scars from painful experience and loss, slowly revealed. Author is one of two actors
Don't see it if You don’t like uncomfortable subjects or Irish accents.
