Funny, Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Great writing

See it if character dissection of everyone's own reality is different from the one they live in

Don't see it if no reason not to see it; it's a small but strong production

Rainbow cast, New twist on southern gothic, Where is lesbian rep?, Atmospheric staging, Earnest/funny/determined performances

See it if new work, competently staged & developed with committed cast & crew, in Festival format to showcase emerging talent is to your liking + A.C.

Don't see it if small, unadorned, new work that takes risks with untested actors & production team is not where you want to invest your entertainment $s

Edgy, Great acting, Quirky, Great writing, Great staging

See it if you enjoy a well-written play with constant action by a great cast touching on numerous issues of the day.

Don't see it if you can't let your imagination fill in the missing person and the areas of the home you never see.
