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

"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."
