Flawed, Interesting, Some good acting, Edgy

See it if Interested in a play about damaged (both emotionally & physically) characters who through circumstances become roommates.

Don't see it if Scenes of B&D, sexual acting out, & violence are triggers​. Some of the situations are highly unlikely, though not without interest. Read more

Overrated, Disappointing, Choppy, poor book, Cliched

See it if You want a story with characters that feel inplausible. Dialogue sounded as if written for reading rather than speaking. B-movie plot.

Don't see it if You want a well-crafted show that makes you feel something. The reveals throughout only made us squirm. Read more

Ambitious, Edgy, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Intense dramatic performances in a tightly written piece dealing with a topic not always presented on stage.

Don't see it if You are put off by violent themes and simulated sexual assault.

Bold, Thought-provoking, Intense, Indulgent, Edgy

See it if You're a fan of dark, sadistic subject matter. Like unique themes that push boundaries.

Riveting, Quirky, Intense, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if you like to be on the edge of your seat. Interesting characters and situations in this psychological drama--humor softens the intensity.

Don't see it if you are not willing to see a drama that is intense and touches on issues like abuse and S & M.
