Dizzying, Quirky, Slow, Excruciating, Tedious

See it if A play whose lead character is sliding with no stops down the sanity hill into complete insanity. It’s hard to watch and repititious

Don't see it if If you need your time spent as part of a theatre audience to leave you with a feeling that you have learned something or been enjoyable.

Entertaining, Funny, Original, Refreshing, Edgy

See it if you enjoy light comedy sprinkled with "island humor"

Don't see it if you have trouble understanding"caribb. accents, with inside humor, and, in general, have trouble hearing, or dislike sexual humor

Fluffy, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if you don't mind .....only a few laughs/clumsily contrived situations/uneven acting/predictable plot

Don't see it if you are looking for something profound or complex

Confusing, Excruciating, Slow

See it if you want to support new, original productions in their first premiere

Don't see it if you're looking for a piece with polished production values

Cliched, Disappointing, Funny, Quirky, Relevant

See it if you're interested in family drama & plays about immigrants.

Don't see it if you're expecting great writing or acting. The cast tries, but it's not a good production, sadly.

Indulgent, Fluffy, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if You want to support independent theatre that is culturally and thematically diverse.

Don't see it if You have high expectations with respect to writing, acting, staging and set design.

Disappointing, Funny

See it if you want-a comedy with plenty of over the top moments-to support new productions-a romantic convey that is very light on romance

Don't see it if you don't mind-under developed characters-contrived plot resolutions-questionable scene of woman taking advantage of man akin to rape

40
Insipid, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched, Banal

See it if Don't!

Don't see it if You have no patience for overacting and one dimensional characters
