Great writing, Intelligent, Great acting, Funny, Clever

See it if You can enjoy something that’s completely ridiculous, over the top and unbelievable yet manages to explore some harsh truths in a funny way.

Don't see it if You’re not willing to set aside reality for a little while and let the absurd dark humor take you away. Read more

Disappointing, Great acting, Great writing, Quirky, Insipid

See it if you enjoy seeing what young playwrights are up to in working with the difficulties of family relationships, religion, drug and alcohol abuse

Don't see it if you want great drama - a bit campy and not too funny though there are lots of good points surfaced most of them fell flat for me.

Quirky

See it if A few funny absurd moments. Plus full Male nudity in first extended scene

Don't see it if A bit too over the top and jokes become tired. Off off Broadway quality

Edgy, Ambitious, Quirky, Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if Amusing show affirms the humanity of ppl w/ sobriety problems; condemns the selfish, shrewish squares who begrudge having to supervise them.

Don't see it if you prefer secular arguments to religious ones. Addict is cast as a holy fool. Show’s moral reasoning boils down to "because God says so." Read more

Undeveloped, Immature, Disappointing, Quirky, Absurdist

See it if interested in a young playwrights attempt at a farcical approach to religion, selling of souls, heaven & hell. A few amusing moments.

Don't see it if easily offended by satirizing religion, gore, male nudity, substance abuse. I was not offended by the above, but was by the lack of craft. Read more

Intelligent, Resonant, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you understand the silliness of family loyalty no matter the costs and enjoy send ups of Heaven and Hell

Don't see it if you are a fundamentalist Christian or any other religion that believes in Old Testament justice or family loyalty at all costs Read more
