See it if you like short plays. Whole is greater than sum of parts: don't like one play, you get another. All well acted, well staged, and timely.
Don't see it if you dislike topics like MeToo, addictn, interracial love, arrested developmt. Ea play has interesting premise; some land better than others.
See it if Four decades in, EST's Marathon of shorts remains the theatreworld's best bargain box of buried treasures. Fifteen over three nights: A,B&C.
Don't see it if No star wattage this year. Series A, uneven?Sure. A little disappointing?Perhaps. Should you still try series B and C?Absolutely can't miss.
See it if you enjoy the one-act play form. The first two plays are terrific, and then the evening starts to go downhill. Good acting and staging.
Don't see it if you enjoy quality one-act plays. Series A starts off well and then slides down the rabbit hole. The actors try to overcome their material.
See it if You need to be OK with seeing short scenes which in some cases feel unresolved. You really enjoy the concept of one Acts.
Don't see it if You are looking for fully fleshed out characters and themes. This feels like a work in progress for most of the 5 plays.
See it if Series A is five short one-act plays, mostly about individuals and relationships in trouble.
Don't see it if You don’t like one-act plays where not everything is explained and tension is mostly left unresolved.
See it if 3 out of 5 are good, short vignettes. The funnier and more tongue-in-cheek plays excel. A really good time overall.
Don't see it if 2 out of 5 rambled and their more serious parts weren’t so successful.
See it if you want to see 5 short one-acts with fine writing and acting that leave you wanting to longer versions
Don't see it if you are triggered by stories of rape, alcoholism, racism, or the abuse of asylum seekers.
See it if you like 1 act plays, are interested in current issues, enjoy good writing, acting & human interrelationships.
Don't see it if you dislike 1 act plays with serious themes that, at times, do not provide "depth" due to the structure of this abbreviated play format.
See it if you support their mission of presenting multiple nights of 1 acts.
Don't see it if you believe they should do fewer nights of short plays when the year's crop isn't, like this year, up to par.
See it if you enjoy lots of ideas packed into short acts, and enjoy laughing and thinking and feeling all in a short time
Don't see it if you want serious character development or elaborate plots
See it if You will enjoy five one act plays, several of which address contemporary issues (interracial dating, date rape, Me Too).
Don't see it if You are not interested in seeing new one-act plays of uneven quality.
See it if I love the EST Marathon, I’ve been going for years. Always gems on the bill, and if you don’t like a play it will be over soon.
Don't see it if I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to see this.
See it if Two of the plays are knockouts--well-written, acted, directed: Rosie by Lily Houghton, who scored Danya Taymor as director and Tricycle
Don't see it if Backflip by Dan Giles, crisply directed by Matt Dickson. Amy Fox's I'm Sorry is cleverly conceived and has its moments but the start is
See it if You like a great collection of plays by a talented group of artists. A nice mix of content and each piece feels well done and well curated
Don't see it if you want to see a full length play!
