Quirky, Intense, Difficult to understand, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if extremely intense one man shows interest you. Thomas converses with his neighbors who exist mostly in his mind trying to save them from sin

Don't see it if you dislike heavy accents or plays that require your active mental interaction to track the events.

Thought-provoking, Vigorous acting, Great writing, Edgy, Intense

See it if to see a visceral, powerful solo piece by Walsh in which 1 spirited actor inhabits his sinful neighbors as he plunges into religious fervor.

Don't see it if ur looking for lighter fare than this off-beat, riveting, unrestrained piece that demands your rapt attention; u suffer from ecclesiophobia.

Problematic accents, Metatheatrical, Gripping story, Brilliant script

See it if you'd like to see a problematic production of a brilliant, infrequently performed script from one of the great living playwrights.

Don't see it if you do not want to sit through long stretches in which “dialog” is not so intelligible. Read more

Great writing, Confusing, Intense, Ambitious

See it if you follow Enda Walsh. Writing and depiction of characters is terrific.

Don't see it if you have a problem with thick accents. Difficult to understand some of the dialogue which made the show confusing.

Confusing, Dizzying, Edgy, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you admire Enda Walsh and are willing to view his dizzying portrayal of a man's dramatic breakdown without understanding everything he says.

Don't see it if you need to understand everything the marvelous solo actor says. As others have mentioned, his accent is thick and it can be frustrating.

Indulgent, Excruciating, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if ... you're an Enda Walsh completist. A committed one-man cast. Difficult accent. Hard to follow.

Don't see it if .. you want to avoid a 100 minute play that felt longer.
