The New York Times

"'Addressless' takes pains to show that people experiencing homelessness are more than just numbers on a caseworker’s docket. Then the show shrinks them down to numbers anyway...More irksome, 'Addressless' doesn’t follow through on its choose-you-own-adventure premise...Even if 'Addressless' sometimes sacrifices deep identification to its game structure, it wants us to do better, and the show’s chat function provides a list of resources to enable that."

It offers yet another example of the flexibility, effectiveness…and theatricality!… of digital theater. And it turns a “them” into an “us.”
