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.

Experimental, Quirky, Slow, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if Grave luuving "trumpeters" live amid the dead awaiting & debating Grandad's resurrection.Theology:"May the martyrs receive you in 2ndcoming"

Don't see it if Large cast w/ uneven accents. Blasphemy.Mean-spirited shots negate the debate/discourse from rising. "You enjoy your resurrection, sunshine" Read more

Why???

See it if you love wonderful sets. Or if you love absurdism for the sake of absurdism.

Don't see it if absurdism without purpose is a turn off. Read more

Disappointing, Quirky, Confusing, Banal

See it if You like experimental theater with religious wit & very quirky characters. The actors made a valiant effort to Interpret this play.

Don't see it if If indeed there was a point to the play, I sincerely missed it. Unfortunately, I would recommend to skip this one.

Disappointing, Quirky, Dated, Cliched, Banal

See it if you want to see some mostly good actors struggle to perform a very bad, hokey, totally pointless play. Costuming was good too.

Don't see it if you want a coherent plot; even acting, consistent accents.

Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Quirky, Funny

See it if The height of absurdist drama performed by a cheeky cast with witty asides intrigues you. Reminiscent of Firesign Theater.

Don't see it if You want a simple plot or a straightforward premise.
