Don't see it if Not willing to taste some the same boredom & repetition the characters are forced to endure. Uncomfortable with raw situations.
See it if You want to see two expert actors. Friedman and Hayon find novel, theatrical ways to humanize and conceptualize their characters.

Don't see it if If you don't have the patience, appreciation for Godot meets subtle Contemp Realism; you wouldn't enjoy Stoppard's question game for 2 hrs.
See it if you like plays about people imprisoned forever, somewhere (with very committed performances)
Don't see it if the semi-abstract anyperson style of the scenario leaves you anwhere and nowhere
See it if you like "we're locked in a cell" plays. Terrific acting, esply Friedman. Script grounded in reality (eat, exercise, pee, talk) YET many...
Don't see it if basics unanswered: why imprisoned? what country? professn? No discussn of outside world response. Still, actors make much of ltd material.
See it if Want to look at the human psyche under devastating circumstances. Play's raw & dark, surprisingly tender, even funny in spots.

See it if u want to see excellent acting by two women playing captors in an unknown place and situation doing what any two might do in such conditions
Don't see it if you can't deal with "raw" and "intense" and need to know where and why they are imprisoned - for me the play was aiming for the universal.
See it if It's a somewhat touching meditation on friendship and love in adversity.
Don't see it if There's a fair bit of implied violence & it's intense. If you heard "women in prison" and thought "Shannon Tweed," this is not for you. :)
