Well-acted, Rambling, Unfocused, Twisty

See it if you like whodunnits...as told by an unhinged protagonist. Well acted, but lots of tangents which slow the pace. Not much substance.

Don't see it if you are annoyed by a manic narrator. Monday is a thriller/character portrait without much takeaway. The actress is better than her material.

Entertaining, Funny, Clever, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You like fast paced one person monologues that are quirky yet illuminate mental illness.

Don't see it if You don’t want to be talked at by a crazy woman for an hour plus. It’s funny and enlightening but a bit unnerving.

Clever, Masterful, Quirky, Funny, Delightful

See it if Solo woman enacts her end of a police interview at work. She's batty but entertaining. Delicious twisted black humor and cool plot twists.

Don't see it if You don't want to journey into a warped mentality. You want something more moving or meaningful. This was cute and clever.

Absorbing, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if As watching you can picture the other person she was talking to. Things are not what they seem to be. You slowly see that something is out

Don't see it if One woman show all on the stage is a end table and chair. Uncomfortable with polar disorder.

Twisty plot, Good acting, Needs a little editing, Unnerving

See it if You want to see a psychological dramedy where someone exhibits a touch of madness.

Don't see it if Don't like solo shows or can't hang in there when things start slow and then bog down a bit in middle.

Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You would enjoy a solo show about the drawing from the author's professional experience with those having the problem. Very realistic.

Don't see it if no matter how realistic, you don't find the mentally ill engaging.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a one woman show that takes you down a road and just when you think you know whats going on something shifts.

Don't see it if You are not comfortable seeing a play about someone who seems to have it all together but there is more to her than meets the eyes. Read more

For a previous production

"Part of what makes this a compelling story is that its ambiguous clues and its misdirections rope you into sympathy with a character that it might otherwise be hard to find common cause with. Stockton presents Nikki’s unraveling under pressure with sensitivity and subtlety...Austin Pendleton directs with a light touch...Together they offer an opportunity to detect the humanity and pain in the kind of character we would generally prefer to keep at a distance."
