Quirky, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Relevant

See it if you'd enjoy an interesting look and better understanding of difficult mental issues faced by young people. Well portrayed by this cast.

Don't see it if you want a polished play - there is a lot of potential here, but it is a low budget production that could use some sound and light tweaks.

Poorly cast although good actors, Terrible sound design, Good direction, Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a fairly well written show that seems more like a solo than a show with a cast of more than 6

Don't see it if nonexistent sound design and miscast leads become a nonstarter for you (lead actors are solid, but not right for the roles) Read more

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a play about a guy that is dealing with some mental health issues and how he is attempting to deal with them. Self therapy.

Don't see it if You are not comfortable hearing about a person with mental health issues and how he deals with it and how it affects people in his circle.

49
Relevant, Zero production values, Poor direction, Repetitive, Amateurish

See it if you are so interested in stories about someone with Asperger's Syndrome that you can overlook poor acting, direction and writing.

Don't see it if you expect a professional performance that is, at least, fairly well written and somewhat compelling.

55
Banal, Amateur, Indulgent

See it if you're looking for one person's insight into their own journey.

Don't see it if you're looking for a professional, polished production. Read more

48
Slow, Disappointing, Banal

See it if You want to support someone in the play.

Don't see it if You want to see a play that you can relate to and that hold your interest. Read more

Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing, Banal

See it if Perhaps someone interested in clinical psychology.

Don't see it if Very aptly named, particularly the "for myself" part. Lacking in dramatic impact, and very, very (did I say very?) repetitive.

69
Repetitive, Disappointing, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you have a deep interest in Asperger's syndrome, anxiety and depression. Amateurish and not well delivered it still has merits.

Don't see it if you have no patience for productions that leave much to be desired and if you can't see the value in this exploration of relevant topics.

May 22nd, 2019

"A thought-provoking and entertaining exploration of one artist’s struggle to move through mental disorder to a better self-understanding...Crisply written with a strong supporting cast...What impressed me a lot about both the writing and performances is that Alex’s self analysis never veers too deeply towards self pity...A continuing exploration and conversation about the personal nature of mental health, the value of art and the importance of moving forward."

For a previous production

"We are spun round and round with Ideas and thoughts that won't leave and memories that fuel these cycles of self torture and fear in an extremely relatable experience...This was a very brave and abstract show. I enjoyed the skillful and vulnerable crafting of such truth and emotion and the end of our experience its undeniable how absolutely harsh human-ing can be...Piccione connected to the tough parts of the human experience for us all and it was thought provoking."
