Absorbing, Ambitious, Edgy, Relevant, Confusing

See it if You like edgy suspenseful sort of futuristic, sort of sci-fi, sort of military drama. Good attempt on a shoestring budget.

Don't see it if You don’t like small theatre where you have to use your imagination a lot. They do a lot with a little here but you need to “see” it.

Ambitious, Banal, Slow, Edgy

See it if This one need as some rework. It could be good, cia...spy vs spy, but not clear or linear enough.

Don't see it if You want a well written script. A story that is more consistent.

Banal, Dizzying, Excruciating, Poor story

See it if An apt title for this meandering story with a mediocre script. High school-esque performances and mediocre staging. I just wanted to leave.

Don't see it if You want a quality theatrical experience. Also it was very warm in the space. Several people nodded off.

Quirky, Dizzying, Confusing, Relevant, Insipid

See it if you want to see some young actors doing a commendable job with a script that needs some tightening up. It has potential. Tech was good+.

Don't see it if you are bothered by an unfinished feel: story ends abruptly, is slow at parts and can be confusing.

Clever, Disappointing, Edgy

See it if closing night liked the effort and the a concept and the art studio as an entrance

Don't see it if too late . but some work is needed i to refine the play. The set needs more work. In summer the theater needs better A/C

Ambitious, Absorbing, Intense, Thought-provoking, Confusing

See it if You enjoy psychological dramas that require you to figure out the characters' motivations. You like dark comedy. You like spy stories.

Don't see it if You want a clear, easy to understand story & character intentions. You don't like not having all the answers. You don't like CIA stories.

48
Confusing, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if You like a group of scenes trying to portray various angles of conspiracy theories, trust no one, and mind games unsuccessfully.

Don't see it if You want a show with a meaningful plot or characters you mildly care about.

40
Suspenseful, Disappointing, Confusing, Intense, Quirky

See it if You enjoy spy thrillers. Want a play with an abundance of suspense. If you enjoyed the movie The Recruit, this one's for you.

Don't see it if You want a polished play with characters with consistant motivations and a resolution to the suspenseful elements of the play. Read more
