Intelligent, Slow, Confusing, Disappointing, Clever

See it if you are interested in elements that may make a good play with refinements, staging and sound. It is an interesting subject on after effects.

Don't see it if you cannot tolerate a loose, in-the-works production on a nearly bare stage. The one microphone used for the young actor was echoing.

52
Cliched, Disappointing, Insipid, Indulgent, Banal

See it if You need to see another play with a holocaust memory theme.

Don't see it if Skill with tech issues is something you expect from a play being done for the public. The sound equipment malfunctioned seriously.

63
Confusing, Disappointing, Some nice singing

See it if The child actress is special with presence and singing talent. The story had some potential but hard to get through.

Don't see it if The meandering plot, terrible sound problems with feedback unaddressed, plus the fake banjo playing and Scottish accent were off putting.

Over ambitious plot, Tender moments, Engaging acting, Confusing, History lesson

See it if For the sweet grandfather-granddaughter interaction. For a look at post WWII lives and regrets. Interesting facts about women in the war.

Don't see it if U want slick sets or U don't like plays that skip back & forth in time. The year of the present is unclear. The end jumps the shark.

Disappointing, Dissuasive, Weak acting, Absurd in many ways, Tedious

See it if you'd like to see what appears to be an unedited plot lifted from a 1940s war movie with all kinds of disparate detours; has some moments

Don't see it if you would like to spend your time watching a coherent, finished piece of work and not sit there wondering how you would fix this one
