Insipid, Fluffy, Confusing, Banal

See it if If you like a play where the characters are not likeable. A story that is not solid.

Original, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Slow

See it if you want an abject lesson on survivalism in the dog-eat-dog world of helicopter parenting via a clever, biting, funny & grim tragicomedy.
