Funny, Entertaining

See it if You like plays not easily categorized: abt a Vietnam vet returned to his sleepy town w/out much happening staged as a comic book come alive.

Don't see it if You prefer well defined plays that fit neatly in a category: musical, drama or comedy. This one doesn’t. Read more

Thought-provoking, Great singing, Dizzying, Ambitious

See it if You don't mind show that is disjointed and covers alot of topics in a short amount of time. If you enjoy good singing and good acting...

Don't see it if You want to see a show that gels and brings it all together simply.

Slow, Intense, Great acting

See it if You’re a fan of any of the cast members, or just want to see a show with really strong acting/performances

Don't see it if You’re not into shows with dark themes or raunchy humor, you want a fast-paced book that feels like it goes by very quickly

Thought-provoking, Raunchy, Cliched, Funny, Entertaining

See it if The staging really did make me feel like a summer night in Texas outside behind the bar.

Don't see it if Violent actions and speech bother you. If a play featuring a drunken man with PTSD is too hard to watch. Read more

Slow, Quirky, Edgy

See it if You like dark comedies, and shows about the effects of war on soldiers, and down and dirty family and relationship woes.

Don't see it if You like bigger dramas, and shows that are faster paced and less crude.

Edgy, Long, Confusing, Slow, Absorbing

See it if You like dramas about dysfunctional family relationships centered around a VietNam vet with PTSD. Acting is very good.

Don't see it if Some of the artistic staging seemed unnecessary & repetitive & made the play too long.

“The play is described, rightfully, as a dark comedy, which is powerfully portrayed by the brothers, Roy and Ray...After 90 minutes of yelling and fighting, the scene is a lovely way to end the play and begin their lives.”
