Ambitious, Cliched, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if Too many scene changes and the focus of the story is rather unclear makes this play confusing & too long. The only standout is Zack Rickert.

Don't see it if There are men kissing, a wheelchair, a Melissa McCarthy impersonation and a brother who writes poetry but not gay. The word is ambitious.

Resonant, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Emotional, Vietnam era message

See it if shows like Vietnam War "Sticks and Bones" and "Streamers" with their gay, disabled, family, & race themes (of the 70's era) are for you.

Don't see it if you expect something with brand new perspectives, or don't like to be reminded of Vietnam.
