Absorbing, Cliched, Ambitious, Needs editing, Interesting

See it if You like to see work that is in its early stages of development. Some really interesting ideas and moments...some not so much.

Don't see it if You’re not willing to sit through a play that’s a bit too long and a bit heavy handed to get to some really interesting material.

Cliched, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a story of a dysfunctional family dealing (or NOT dealing) with mental health issues and AIDS in the '90s.

Don't see it if you want a well-shaped story. The timing is awkward, some scenes need to move faster, others not so much.

Dated, Disappointing, Slow, Good acting

See it if you'd like to see some good acting; the acting was the best part of the show You want to support a company that produces new works.

Don't see it if you're expecting something new or to be moved emotionally.The play is surprisingly flat. It's all been said before & said so much better.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if you have ever been part of a family struggling with members who are physically/ mentally ill. Deals with both hope and despair - how human!

Don't see it if you are uncomfortable seeing sick people in a hospital setting where illness is primary and cures not often easy or available.

Great acting, Indulgent, Slow, Thought-provoking, Amateurish

See it if you want to see a heartfelt play with several good aspects, most notably an outstanding lead performance by Stephen Thompson.

Don't see it if you have no tolerance for an unpolished work. The play is too long. The venue is very, very far from Broadway. Read more

"An emotional roller coaster that ultimately builds toward a poignant and powerful climax...The play is staged beautifully...The best performance of the night was that of Zoey O’Toole, who turned in an exceptionally emotional performance as Beatrice...This play succeeds, in a way that I can’t say about some other plays I’ve seen, in managing to tie it all together, and making it feel like it’s all relevant to the broader story of this family."
