Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great staging, Entertaining, Intelligent

See it if you want a look at small town life with some good acting to portray a range of characters and their interactions, good and bad.

Don't see it if you want one story with a conclusion or are bothered by the tension of people interacting with daily problems.

Absorbing, Resonant, Ambitious, Well staged & acted, Relevant

See it if An arc of small town prejudice well rendered thru sensitive acting, fluid staging & lyrical, melancholic prose Fine ensemble esp last couple

Don't see it if Despite Girod's obvious talent & Block's solid staging, it's an evening of one-acts that doesn't quite gel despite unconvincing ending

Ambitious, Braided, Great acting, Strong writing

See it if you like to experience innovative ways of playwriting & are interested in some of the ways people of different races interact today.

Don't see it if you want a play that tells one continuous story & resolves all the questions that it's posed before the final blackout. Read more

Confusing, Thought-provoking, Insipid

See it if It's kinda neither here not there - neither glaringly horrible nor particularly good.

Don't see it if There is something there that may be developed but it's rather buried behind the heaps of programmatic platitudes. No AC to speak of.
