Don't see it if If you've forgotten what running once felt like, or that a broomstick at one time might have been a sword, a spear or a means of flight.
See it if you want a madcap show. The actors switching characters continually can be amusing. The show's air of levity is fun.

See it if You want to see an entertaining show that deals with a serious matter in a very quirky and " light " way. They 4 actors are quite delightful
Don't see it if You expect a show with a very easy to follow plot. It is ( at times ) confusing and it doesn't help that the actors constantly switch roles

Don't see it if If you can't follow a fast paced play
See it if You want to be entertain by energetic physical comedy & not be burdened with serious plots of xenophobia and racism. This is a comedy/parody
Don't see it if You are a grouch who hate goofy spoofy method of telling a story lightheartedly but still raise consciousness about a serious subject.

Don't see it if You want something completely linear and easy to follow. Are not interested in immigration or the current political climate.
See it if You like slap-stick comedy. All 4 characters play the same role it was delightful! I can't see anyone NOT liking this! I want to go again!
Don't see it if you have no imagination what so ever! If you can't see what they are trying to create and you just have no sense of humor.
See it if you like innovation and can appreciate fast paced and zany improv-like acting, and can be patient with some plot confusion!
Don't see it if you want traditional and linear "drama".

Don't see it if you are looking for a long play. this play is from 2006 but the themes are relevant today. if you don't like off or off off broadway shows
See it if you need a good laugh. For fans of physical humor, it doesn't get much better. Some serious issues addressed, but not too directly.
Don't see it if you are looking for a serious drama, lots of costume and staging spectacle. Immigration issues are serious but not here.
See it if Superb acting, very original play where the actors exchange roles rapidly and present the stage at their acting....An intimate theater...
Don't see it if you like to see an amazing acting with a great humor...
See it if you are enchanted by a clever premise (all four actors play the AYM) and inventive staging. But this picaresque story goes nowhere.
Don't see it if you get impatient. AYM wore out its welcome and delivered no insights. Ambling, rambling. Max Samuels is terrific; he's one to watch!
See it if You enjoy storytelling. It's a good attempt at being quirky and interesting but it falls short on both counts.
Don't see it if You want to see a well polished show. The characters are not distinctive enough and the story becomes confusing.
See it if You have time and $ you are needing to waste ! You are a fan of constant pointless physical comedy. You like bad playwrighting !
Don't see it if You want to see a play that is worth your time. You know and care about good theatre. You know playwright or cast, too embarrassing !
See it if You would enjoy a scripted play that sounds exactly like improv. Oh and you love dry British humour.
Don't see it if You want costumes that aren't drab identical suits. Unless you think it's clever to use random back stage objects as props.
