Ambitious, Bucolic, Clear, Historical

See it if you would like to see a clear account of a rarely-performed classic of Restoration theater in a lush, bucolic setting.

Don't see it if you have no interest in theater history, or the history of women as agents in determining their own lives and loves. Read more

Ambitious, Entertaining, Dizzying, Quirky, Profound

See it if you want a new take on the first play written by a woman in English and you enjoy the vigor of mostly naked youth giving it their all.

Don't see it if you are bothered by distractions - flights overhead, helicopters whizzing by over a park!, children talking loudly, passers-by, park vehicle

Ambitious, Intense

See it if You like very very naked theater, theater about women's agency back before they had much, or reasonably good works that are rarely performed

Don't see it if Nudity offends you or you need polished performances all around (only 1 actor was genuinely great, though most were good).

Historic, Bold, Unusual, Racy

See it if these things matter: overlooked female playwrights from the past, free art, good vocal projection, challenging gender roles, fearless youth.

Don't see it if these things offend: nudity, sonic interruptions from airplanes, garbage trucks & someone playing P-Funk's "Atomic Dog," mosquitoes & flies. Read more

Banal, Ambitious, Disappointing, Raunchy, Slow

See it if If you want an unusual take on first work by female writer put into english, maybe the first one known. Nudity, inconsistencies in acting .

Don't see it if If planes, trucks, cars blasting radio, mosquitoes and bugs, children screaming distract you.
