See it if you think role of theater is to provoke - even shock - audience and enjoy seeing two leading actresses acting up a storm.
Don't see it if you don't like seeing play where audience laughs in inappropriate places as nervous response to audacious premise.
See it if You love a drama about a touchy subject. I was shocked when I found out what this was about. Don't find out just see it and be surprised
Don't see it if a touchy subject which is 100% accurate bothers you
See it if You enjoy a well written well performed EDGY drama. The ending drops off a bit from the caliber of most of the show.
Don't see it if non traditional sexual interaction is offensive (no nudity).
See it if want to see some great acting on stage. Subject matter is absurd and from from the norm.
Don't see it if You are easily offended and you do not like situations that are far away from the norm.
See it if You support new work and women playwrights, and have enjoyed previous dark, twisted Naomi Wallace plays
Don't see it if You think a "shocking" premise deserves to be followed up by reasonably believable plot points. This felt like a Law & Order SVU rip-off
See it if u crave powerful writing and acting. Your head will spin(as mine did) at the events of this play, a strong melodrama in the Lillian Hellman
Don't see it if vein of complex characters in melodramatic situations. The cast is tops w/ the women's rolls being the most rewarding. I was bowled over!!
See it if you like thought-provoking theatre with stellar performances. But don't read ANYTHING about it. (Spoilers!)
Don't see it if you find "difficult" subject matter off-putting. Quite a few people left at intermission.
See it if you want to be shocked with a disturbing, but poorly written plot twist. You just care about plot and don't mind mediocre everything else.
Don't see it if horrendous fake British accents, graphic sex portrayals, and scenes that never end bother you. You need to be kept on the edge of your seat.
See it if you want to see a topic that is likely unfamiliar to you. Lots of drama and shock value, but unsatisfying. Well acted. Difficult material.
Don't see it if you don't tolerate non-traditional sexual themes well. There's no sweetness or sunshine here.
See it if you like your chocolate dark-- strange, uncompromising, lurid and gorgeously wrought. A big brave leap from a singular sensibility
Don't see it if you would prefer something tidier or less grotesque
See it if you're interested in complex plays with big ideas, and are patient with inconsistent performances.
Don't see it if the level of acting is important to you (the leading performance was quite weak), and you like your plays well crafted.
See it if love intense family drama you're open to hard to watch topics you value new stories and great acting
Don't see it if you are easily put off (sort of) incest topics difficult subject matters offend you
See it if you like edgy drama that some may find unsettling, and you're not put off by writing that goes a bit poetic sometimes.
Don't see it if you hate edgy drama that is somewhat unsettling, or you're put off by dialogue that doesn't always sound like the way people really talk.
See it if I have NEVER seen a play that treats this theme ! Can't say more without spoiling the incredible shock factor ! See it !
Don't see it if You can't deal with very sensitive themes played out in a very graphic way !
