Great acting, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if you want to see the first post-Trump play or if you like apocalyptic scifi with a bit of LGBTQ philosophy mixed in.

Don't see it if you wish everything cut and dried or crystal clear.

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Good acting, Gives a message

See it if You want to see a performance of the effects an apocalyptic event can have on humanity. You like simple staging.

Don't see it if You need elaborate staging. You can't sit back and have an open mind. You only like plays about real issues and not what if.

Shallow, Relevant, Unfinished, Original, Edgy

See it if you want a clever, not-particularly-subtle meditation on otherness. It's a refreshingly unique show with a deliberately diverse cast.

Don't see it if you like taut pacing or character development. They felt a bit stereotypical and their conflicts too scripted. The ending was also too pat.

Relevant, Flat, Long, Well acted, Circuitous writing

See it if you liked Lord of the Flies or post-apocalyptic philosophical plays in a modern setting, well acted and performed in an imposing room.

Don't see it if you don't like mildly interactive theatre, or need plays to have clarity in plot and premise, however well-intentioned, directed or acted. Read more

Relevant, Slow, Quirky, Cliched

See it if You want to support young artists in their effort to share an all too familiar story about our common humanity. Nice ensemble.

Don't see it if You are not interested in experimental theatre and are intolerant of weak or cliched dialogue. Doesn't hit the mark.

Disappointing, Insipid, Relevant, Slow, Ambitious

See it if You want surface-level exploration of race and identity through simple story-telling. You are interested in post-apocalyptic themes.

Don't see it if You dislike clunky content and meandering story lines - either as a result of poor writing or poor acting. Read more

Great writing, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Must see, Great acting

See it if .... you want to expand your view and think deeply. Loved the show. So relevant after our recent election.

Don't see it if ... you want a light and fluffy show. This one entertains AND asks you to ponder important issues.
