Absorbing, Dark, Quirky, Intense, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy absurdist art. Are a Kafka fan. Are in the mood for something dark. Enjoy dark fairytales. It's like Vonnegut meets a horror story

Don't see it if You dislike art that is open to interpretation from each individual viewer. Want to be able to sleep well after viewing. It may haunt you. Read more

Dizzying, Confusing, Quirky, Funny, Ambitious

See it if you want to spend 75 minutes with a young student ill in Russia with the doctors she encounters and her boyfriend all mutating inanely.

Don't see it if you want a linear play or have difficulty with three different accents and foreign phrases, some not spoken toward the audience.
