Excruciating, Insipid, Slow, Indulgent, Fluffy

See it if You like feeling superior to others. 5 LABORIOUS indulgent monologs about immigrants done wrong. 2 1/2 hrs w/no break, You are held hostage.

Don't see it if You don't need to be pounded over the head again & again & ... with the fact the people written about have it bad & we are responsible.

Slow, Wildly uneven

See it if you have the patience of a saint - there are 2 decent, interesting monologues but unfortunately they were sandwiched by 3 terrible ones.

Don't see it if you can help it.

Ambitious, Confusing, Indulgent, Slow, Great acting

See it if You would enjoy seeing an incredible acting tour-de-force -- an actress doing a riveting monologue while being water-tortured.

Don't see it if You hate plays with excessive overwrought prose, or you hate shows that just monologue sequences.

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

See it if you enjoy contemporary plays about illegal immigration and all it entails; you like watching long monologues- there are 5 (1 for each actor)

Don't see it if you cannot sit through 2 hours without intermission; you need drama/action/interaction between characters on stage
