See it if Dislocated city & country dwellers experience culture clash & loss of meaning in their lives. Great staging w hilarious animal scenes.
Don't see it if You are not interested in Chinese issues, parents feeling separated from their children, & class differences making people feel inadequate.
See it if you have any interest at all in new ways of constructing drama.
Don't see it if you are looking for the old-fashioned virtues of the well-made play.
"The ninety-minute piece...resembles a children's theatre production, with set designer Andrew Moerdyk focusing on bright, primary colors, a doll house sized villa set upstage and, as scripted, on-stage actors voicing the barks and baaaas for prop animals...The small issues that arise among the different classes of this supposedly classless society add up to a charmingly told exploration of the human search for community, be it through people, places or lifestyles."
“The strikingly clever production, excellently directed by Ken Russ Schmoll, finds a perfect visual idiom to capture the play’s complicated tone, using manipulations of scale to create both deadpan humor and a weird poignancy...There’s a lot going on for a 90-minute play–perhaps too much at times...But these are tiny quibbles... especially given how wonderful the production is: witty, smart, absurdist, but also poignant."
