Slow, Edgy, Quirky, Intense, Disappointing

See it if you like experimental theatre with little staging or props. Some good effort here by most of the actors and the sound effects are tops.

Don't see it if you do not like short plays where everything is not developed to bring about clarity. Voice projection varies among the cast.

Skip, Slow, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you enjoy a good performance or two in a cast with a mix of talent levels.

Don't see it if you want a strong story with fleshed out writing and direction - unfinished. Although off-off it feels a little amateur

Funny, Great acting, Clever, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you’re looking for experimental, magical, thought provoking theatre with heart and brains that will challenge the way you see things

Don't see it if You are impatient and need to be spoon fed your theatre rather than be challenged. It is a lot. 2 hours of big concepts in 4 short plays

Quirky, Confusing, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You’re looking for a thought provoking experience. Each part is unique, yet each invites you to think about some overlapping themes.

Don't see it if You’re not ready to do some thinking, because each is thought provoking. There are also some violent themes, so you should be prepared.

Intense, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Riveting, Great acting

See it if You go to the theater to feel, to think, and to reflect. See it if you want to experience emotions you didn't know you had.

Don't see it if You have an aversion to loud noises (gunshots) or bright lights. They appear in only one piece each though. Read more

"While some of the images and allusions in 'Under the Dragon’s Tail' call attention to the writer’s hand at work, the best moments are those in which characters, and not belabored ideas, emerge from the play’s collective unconscious."
