Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Edgy, Absorbing

See it if Nice updated version of an epic play Still resonates. Osborne was ahead of his time. Nice acting by entire cast. Space at Gene Frankel great

Don't see it if No happy moments, Theater had rest room problems. Play ran 1/2 hour over projected length

Turbulent, Ambitious, Edgy, Great writing, Intense

See it if you want to sink into the anger of 1950's British youth with all its harsh, loud language and treatment of others in a bleak seen future.

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with shouting, door slamming and mistreatment of others. This is not a joyful or happy ending play.
