Dublin, March 11, 2015. A loophole in the law makes all drugs legal for 24 hours. On this night of rebellion, Harry finds himself under the influence of Saoirse. Bound by the ecstasy of their union, they share secrets and the stench of bloodshed looms. 'Yokes Night' fuses cut-throat dialect with stylized movement, forging a fresh theatrical experience. A hit at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Don't see it if You are intimidated by a heavy Irish accent. You don't like vivid storytelling. You need a big production. You need fancy staging.
See it if want a show that starts off thinking it will be complete mayhem to something more serious. Actors were great and very committed!
Don't see it if can't understand Irish accents. At times, I was struggling but I would say I got about 95% of the words down. Words are lost in translation.

See it if you like Irish accents, or if you want to see a short drama exploring a darker side of human nature.
Don't see it if Irish dialects are too hard for you to understand, or if you want to see a show with more design elements (there are no props, sets, etc.).
See it if You are open minded and willing to spend an evening considering abortion, drug use, disaffected youth and violence.
Don't see it if You are upset by the themes of drug usage, theft, murder, and obscenity. Most upsetting was the depiction of youth with no moral compass.
