Absorbing, Dizzying, Great acting, Great writing, Great staging

See it if you want an absorbing, timely drama with fantastic writing and phenomenal acting.

Don't see it if you are looking for a show appropriate for small children (some language). Otherwise, GO!

"Dauterman sets Calderón’s story in the present with a focus on themes of mental illness, gender roles, and how our past shapes our perceptions...Dauterman’s dark humor also brings a kind of optimism to the show. She has a beautiful way of shedding a warm light on even her characters’ darkest flaws...This cast is more than up to the task of bringing Dauterman’s unique voice to life...The cherry on top is director Victoria Teague’s expert use of the 360-degree space."
