Stylized, Great acting, Exciting, Surprising, Inconsistent

See it if you like exciting scrappy theater in development and incredibly stylized performances/writing.

Don't see it if you would be frustrated by performances that don't resemble real human behavior (on purpose).

Confusing, Disappointing, Uneven, Disjointed, Relevant

See it if You get a comp or have a friend in it. Want to see a weak attempt at criticism of the penal system.

Don't see it if You are impatient with bootstrap productions and very uneven acting performances.

The New York Times
May 24th, 2017

“A social-justice comedy of sorts…Ms. Stess has a weakness for abundance over clarity. Here she is intent on depicting a whole system of American inequality that deems some lives valuable and others expendable, though there is an antic dimension to this darkness…Ms. Stess does interesting things with repetition as the play goes on, and she also turns racial profiling on its head...Other events are less successfully contrived in service of a political point.”
