Confusing, Banal, Slow, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you like absurd British theater that takes on religious issues. Here, an energetic cast takes on a tough script.

Don't see it if you don't like absurdity to go on too long. I found this presentation tiring, accents and voice projection uneven amidst loud, long bursts.

Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Slow, Confusing, Great opening

See it if you are excited by avant guard drama. The opening scene is wildly funny.

Don't see it if Repetitious, often unclear material irritates you. The initial energy of a big active cast dwindles to a series of monologues by the end.
