Not ready for prime-time yet, Ambitious / promising, Ok cast / males not that strong, Interesting book needs re-working, Confusing (intense) non-meshing storylines

See it if you enjoy supporting new playwrights, directors, young actors. Set on the eve of the '16 Turkish military coup, but it's not ABOUT the coup.

Don't see it if none of the above interests you. Minimalist set: astro-turf & video screen (used creatively); great music played before during & afterwards. Read more

See it if I wanted to like this play. It had an interesting premise, but it was confusing and the acting was weak.

Don't see it if you want a straight forward narrative.
