Confusing, Slow, Indulgent, Dizzying, Quirky

See it if you have nothing better to do. Talented cast working with a difficult subject and script.

Don't see it if you want a story that you can follow. In my 1st row seat one of the stage lights made it almost impossible to watch the action without pain.

Feminist themes, Ambitious all-women cast, Metaphorically rich and complex monologues, Great lead and supporting acting

Don't see it if You will have trouble following a thin plot thread that briefly focuses on various points in women’s lives: child, mother, adult, and oldage Read more

Absorbing, Ambitious, Slow, Literary, Good acting

See it if you like "talky," character-driven plays. You won't mind heavy use of symbolism and can enjoy an unremittingly dark drama.

Don't see it if ypu don't like dark plays' You prefer fully costumed plays. Read more

Thought-provoking, Confusing, Ambitious, Slow, Absorbing

See it if You are interested in a strongly poetic but confusing script and an somewhat uneven performance by an all-female cast.

Don't see it if You are looking for light entertainment or a fully staged production. Definite potential not quite realized here.

Ambitious, Confusing, Intense, Slow

See it if You want to support women’s theater. All female cast & Director. Some writing very eloquent, but at times it was over the top.

Don't see it if Can’t tolerate sparse set, very talky play, felt longer than 90 mins. Story dragged, some over acting. Lead uneven-some monologues well done

Intense, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Intimate, Great acting

See it if You like a strong female cast dealing with themes of mother-daughter relationships, memory, and loss.

Don't see it if You don’t like black box productions. A bit of over-acting in one role, and written in a somwhat grandiose style at times.
