Ambitious, Intelligent, Great writing, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy well crafted new plays bu emerging talent. I thoroughly enjoyed this show, which was carefully constructed and skillfully mounted.

Don't see it if You dislike political dramas, strong language, and dystopian themes. I see this play as a work in development, but aren't they all. Read more

Great writing, Intelligent, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you want to open your mind to where we may be going with all that is happening today. Brilliant writing and the cast is very good.

Don't see it if you cannot open your mind to possibilities of the future based on all that is afoot today. Disturbing moments may not be for all.

Ambitious, Edgy, Relevant, Uneven, Excruciating

See it if As expected, a strong political satire. Quite odd and experimental inducing enough chuckles here and there.

Don't see it if Perplexing progression of events with an unconventional vision. Not really a haha or a moving piece but an intriguing one Read more

Ambitious, Confusing, Quirky, Relevant, Very general

See it if / to immerse yourself in a futuristic world we could find ourselves in if we're not careful, not unlike the Black Mirror TV series.

Don't see it if you expect all elements to come together. Uneven acting and not-specific-enough writing make this an undercooked experience. Read more

Confusing, Ambitious, Relevant, Slow, Banal

See it if Entry level procedural set in high tech future; think a CSI episode written at Google, despite interesting moments over plotting defeats

Don't see it if Despite all the government surveillance & AI techno (it's 2047), its a comfort to know human venality & revenge will still win in the end

"Finds strength in its political voice...However, these important themes are sometimes lost in 'Agnus’s' unfocused plot...The creative team makes the most of the intimate Lion Theatre, using staging techniques, lighting, and projection design to make the production feel grand and evocative...There are elements of brilliance tucked away in an ambitious script and characters worth exploring, but these elements are intertwined with a story that often feels both unfinished and unfulfilling."
