"An innocent light-hearted play with a bubbling cauldron of simmering rage just below the surface. Written by Ben Josephson and efficiently directed by Robert Kalfin, the story is disarmingly simple and allows the fantastic company of actors room to play...A somewhat frothy, uneven evening of theatre, satirical in tone with mature themes that are very compelling, but perhaps, haven’t been fully fleshed out." Full Review
See it if you think you will better understand what makes good theater by enduring a prime example of the very bad.
Don't see it if experiencing massive ineptitude in the theater pains you.
See it if you need baseline of poor writing/staging/overacting, trite plot and character deterioration, to compare other work, or you see as parody
Don't see it if you have any other entertainment, productivity, or sleep options or you cannot sit 90 minutes without interval
See it if You like theatre in the style of Chekov. A little absurd, a little slice of life, good characters, funny monologues.
Don't see it if You're looking for a musical, something edgy or experimental
See it if You like an intelligent one act play that is pretty simple with a few key characters.
Don't see it if You want to have empathy for any of the characters and want to find them relatable. Also don’t see it if you like happy endings.
See it if you like a play with very unusual characters, some quite vulgar and yet funny at the same time. The plot is confusing.
Don't see it if you like a drama where characters act consistently and don't change without reason Some of the vulgar language was unnecessary by ex husband
See it if you know somebody in the cast or you love unnatural dialogue often delivered as if reading from a script.
Don't see it if you expect natural language and situations, you expect likeable characters, or you expect professional direction, acting and writing.
See it if intense family relationship drama with gutsy language
Don't see it if some salty language; son railing endlessly against mother in sickening attacks; seemingly insipid males controlled by mother figure
See it if You like family dramas with characters who can't relate to each other, are wholly dysfunctional, and in a story that's nonsensical.
Don't see it if You're expecting something meaningful or insightful.
See it if you are into watching dysfunctional characters in a family drama, who cannot relate to each other. There are a few sad attempts at comedy.
Don't see it if you have anything better to do. None of the characters garnered any sympathy although they each portrayed a disassociated person in society.
See it if It is a really hot and humid day and you long for a nice, comfy, air-conditioned space to hide away for 90 minutes
Don't see it if You are looking for a play that has a realistic plot, is thought provoking, or has good acting. This show left me feeling sad and depressed
