See it if you want to support some talented young actors who commit wholeheartedly, earnestly and boldly to some agonizing theatre (& deserve better).
Don't see it if you bristle at the idea of an "arty" playwright trying to be "edgy" & "experimental", producing unintelligible nonsense masked as "high art"
See it if you like being confused by who people are, where they are, and what they are saying.
Don't see it if small, black box spaces aren't for you. Or if you have a choice.
See it if You'll see anything with a queer spin to it no matter how derivative it is of other gay works.
Don't see it if You want to see a play with good writing and acting.
See it if You either know someone in the show or want to waste 1 hour and 40 minutes of your life.
Don't see it if You expect to see something with a clear story, interesting characters, and having a point.
See it if you like sweet gay comedies and are willing to leave after the first 20 minutes before it all changes and gets weird.
Don't see it if you can't follow numerous time and reality jumps with a multitude of characters, only some of whom even remotely make sense.
See it if You like anything with a gay theme regardless of plot and dialogue. Love shows with sex crazed cherubs- you think smoke machines are cool
Don't see it if Overly written confusing plot with no pay off . Actors who play multiple roles of characters that no one cares about.
