Entertaining, Great acting, Very personal, Revealing, Thought-provoking

See it if you like a solo show about a gay man who searches for himself in a foreign land. Deals humorously and thoughtfully with typical life-issues.

Don't see it if you are not interested in the lives of gay men especially lonely men searching for connections and love in a foreign country, Korea.

Scottish charmer's tale of teaching and hunting for sex in south korea

See it if hilarious solo performance by a Scot who went to Korea to teach and seek new meat. Not very good at either but scores telling it with swish.

Don't see it if you don't like solo plays, but this is done with panache, the nelly way. Stewart is a Tisch-trained playwright -- a Scottish David Sedaris.

Ambitious, Cliched, Funny, Refreshing, Edgy

See it if you enjoy 1-person shows, seeing gay culture in a foreign country, exploring ups and downs of friendship & the yearning for connection

Don't see it if you don't like 1-person shows, honest gay language & situations, self-deprecating & self-indulgent protagonists, or expect nudity (not any)
