This raw tale of two attorneys whose lives are forever changed by a night of drunken celebration explores and exposes murky waters in a fraught case of "he said, she said" and asks us, "Is justice truly blind?" More…
From the show:
Internationally renowned trial lawyer John Paris plays to win, both in and out of court. For Karen Lukoff, John's young associate, losing has never been an option either. Together, they are a litigation juggernaut. John's nephew Dan Burks isn’t sure where he fits, if at all.
After a major lawsuit victory, John's firm celebrates the win as hard as they fought for it. In the drunken morning hours, left alone, John and Karen collide in a high-octane moment that will cause everyone—including the audience—to question what they know about desire, consent, winning, and losing.
See it if To be expected, the women - Evangelista, Brookshire & Samuels all shine in this pedestrian drama about sexual consent & toxic masculinity
Don't see it if Dripping in legalese & arrogance makes for rough going thru the longish 1st act Drama is in the 2nd but author Kirkland fails to convince
See it if Combative late-nite workplace foxhole sex crime drama. A trial lawyer must prove her mettle to chauvinist boss after injurious judgments.
Don't see it if Great writing/acting with dumb dialogue:"He's like a mutt in heat/She's a certified babe/It's complicated--It's men stuff/It's the system"
Also Note:Don't call anyone "Barbie" unless it's Mattel or birth-certified.
See it if you want to see a muddled tale of what constitutes consensual sex. Nice convertible set.
Don't see it if why is the 3rd character a gay man the woman tries to seduce? Why does he become the defender of the rapist--or IS he a rapist?
See it if the consequences on the lives of 3 attorneys after too much celebrating after winning a big case intrigues you.
Don't see it if you've had enough Me,too drama
See it if you like political dramas with a well acted cast.
Don't see it if you are triggered by the subject of rape. The play is very uncomfortable to watch and the only message is that the legal system is broken.
See it if you are looking for great acting in a so-so play. The author plays one of the main characters, usually I hate that but he is very good
Don't see it if you are looking of a comedy The play needs some work but as I said the cast is top notch
See it if TV movie that was preachy and super cliche and with a just okay cast.
Don't see it if I just did not feel the acting was genuine and the story just was constructed as a me too moment as did me too an injustice
See it if Interesting play regarding a legal team member accused of rape. Can get a bit raunchy at times but kept my interest for the most part
Don't see it if You prefer a lighter subject matter or musical.
See it if Generally interesting and entertaining and good writing and acting at times. Important subject matter that has been overdone recently.
Don't see it if Not much more sophisticated than something commonly seen on T.V. At times predictable but the actors pull it off.
See it if If you like Law and Order this show is for you. A bit too long due to the intermission. But well acted and directed.

Don't see it if if you dislike plays where the guilty are exonerated.

Don't see it if You want something that feels authentic. The 1st act feels like it was only written to have the discussions in the second act.
See it if you are interested in Law & Order style story telling and the very timely themes of consent and rape. The female lead understudy was good.
Don't see it if you are expecting any resolution or unique point of view on a scenario we have heard so many times before.
See it if If you enjoy quirky banter and don’t mind cursing and sexual references throughout the production and don’t mind mediocre acting.
Don't see it if You are sensitive to cursing and would like a faster paced more absorbing production.
See it if Great acting and stage set. First act is somewhat slow. Lots of dialogue about a court case. Second act was rivoting. Very profound.
