Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Quirky

See it if you can bear a subtle glimpse into some of what happens to the people of a neighborhood when it becomes popular and is gentrified.

Don't see it if you fear feeling responsible @ gentrification or, you can't stand plays w trans people of color or, you need a plot to be rigidly defined.
