Don't see it if you expect an elaborate set, lots of movement and action. don't enjoy dark drama, don't enjoy politics being introduced
See it if You are interested in what two actors on a bare stage can create. Just two people reliving a past tragedy trying to make sense of it.
Don't see it if Almost seemed like an actor's studio exercise.
See it if for a one act, 2 person bare-staged play that is thought provoking, interesting and not immediately predictable.
Don't see it if don't like to listen to long dialogue. For a tight easily resolved play or If you don't like to leave theater thinking about what just saw.
See it if you find dialogue without action interesting. You get inside the heads of two different people who react & deal with a life-changing trauma.

See it if you love 2-handers about current topics (survivors' guilt). Well-acted (esply Sophie). Dialogue mainly inane; goes nowhere (until crazy end)
Don't see it if you want coherent, well-expressed ideas. Tremors mostly held my attention (the actors), but gave no enlightenment. Left shaking my head.
See it if You like single conversation shows. It’s about survivor guilt basically, but the divergent ending feels misguided. 60 min felt like 80.

See it if Want a psychological drama, (almost thriller) as former couple explore their differing views on a past tragedy. Are ok w LOTS of plot twists
Don't see it if You want more than 2 actors circling each other on bare stage as you sit inches away. The ending is surprising and perhaps too much so.
See it if If you are looking for a rather circuitous two hander that slowly reveals itself to be about xenophobia and anti-islamic sentiment.
Don't see it if You want to see a cogent examination of anti-islamic sentiment.
