Edgy, Great staging, Riveting, Great acting, Interesting

See it if you like intense plays with quirky, interesting, characters who have issues that are played out on stage. What is reality? What is art?

Don't see it if you don't like actors playing more than one role, a dependence on projections/screens as set, and dysfunctional families. Anticlimactic end.
