Thought-provoking, Clever, Surprising, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if 5 intense plays, each balanced on a knife edge, with a twist. Excellent dialog, acting & buildup of tension, with unexpected resolution.

Don't see it if You don’t like 15 minute plays. Bare bones black box production.

Entertaining, Refreshing, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if 5 intriguing, well-acted shorts—most dealing w/ confrontation & concealment. Naturalistic dialogues. The Fixer is funny! Never a dull moment

Don't see it if you want to see a wide range of writing styles (same playwright wrote all 5). Overall tone is pretty dark. Read more

Edgy, Low-budget charm, Indie theatre, Inconsistent material: highs + lows, Short plays with unconnected themes

See it if you support indie theatre & self-produced short dramas; superb acting by Tricia Alexandro & Irene Glezos; clever touches on a shoestring

Don't see it if you prefer elaborate productions; you dislike foul language esp when it's overdone; you want short plays to be linked thematically somehow Read more

Relevant, Intelligent, Great writing
