Plays to See
May 30th, 2016

“If the goal of this performance was to present a wonderfully twisted, abstract piece of theater, it did so at the cost of a compelling conclusion...I wasn’t really sure what I was supposed to walk away with. However, it’s worth a shot for those into experimental and postmodern theater...With each scene more unpredictable than the last and littered with titillating detail, it definitely makes for an interesting and thought-provoking night.”
