Great acting, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy an absurdist play with fine acting. It creates the atmosphere of being imprisoned with daily sameness. Very good.

Don't see it if You want a regular play with dialogue that advances a plot. If you do not enjoy a puppet/ human mix. If you do not like to think.
